Third record-breaking year for GP trainee recruitment

GP trainee numbers in England have risen for the third year running, with recruitment up a record 15% compared to the same point last year.

Figures released by Health Education England (HEE) show there have been 3,441 acceptances onto GP specialty training in 2020, compared to 2,891 at the same stage in 2019.

With one more recruitment round to go, HEE is on track to beat its target for recruiting 3,500 doctors in training to general practice this year.
