Attracting more people into frontline healthcare

02 December 2019 – Gov.Scot

The latest data published by NHS Education for Scotland shows that clinical radiology and medical oncology have 100% fill rates, both of which will support the Waiting Times Improvement Plan. They are two of 37 medical specialties in which every place is taken – last year that figure was 29.

The number of people applying to specialise in General Practice has increased with 325 posts filled from the 340 advertised – 33 more than in 2018. In GP training posts which were previously seen as “hard to fill” and are eligible for the £20,000 Scottish Government bursary, the number of applications has risen 21%.
