ABSTRACT
The article discusses the report "Modernising Medical Careers," commissioned by former health secretary Patricia Hewitt in the wake of failings surrounding the recruitment process, Medical Training Application Service. The report concludes that medical training in Great Britain should be run by an independent body, not the government. The Tooke Inquiry has recommended removing government influence from medical training and establishing National Health Service Medical Education England to oversee workforce planning and training numbers.
