The LMC have been advised by HEWM that following a tendering exercise, St Helens and Knowsley NHS Trust is to be awarded the contract as lead employer for GP trainees within the West Midlands. They currently carry out this function for Mersey and Cheshire.
I have spoken to colleagues in the North West who tell me that the arrangements work very well and have significantly simplified the contractual arrangements for GP trainees.
I am told that communications will be going out from HEWM later this week / early next.
I should be grateful if you would publicise as appropriate
