It has been suggested that medical research within Great Britain may be in decline. Although this may be the perception, there has previously been no published evidence to demonstrate a reduction in research output. All consultant appointments and place of training were noted over a fixed period from February 1993 to April 2001. The British Society of Gastroenterology is considered to have a comprehensive list of its trainees and consultants. The data from the study support the hypothesis that medical research, at least among Great Britain NHS consultants, is in decline.
