Royal College of Physicians | June 2018 | Innovation in Medicine 2018: Government must double number of medical students

A new policy briefing, Double or quits: calculating how many more medical students we need , from the Royal College of Physicians (RCP)  outlines new calculations for the number of doctors needed, and sets out the key issues facing workforce planning in the UK that affect current supply, future service demand and predicted losses in the workforce. The RCP  has called on the government to double the number of medical school places from 7,500 to 15,000 to meet the needs of tomorrow’s patients (Source: RCP).
