ABSTRACT
The author expresses his opinion about the European Working Time Directive implemented into law in Great Britain and its impact on the quality of medical training of general practitioners in the country. The author asserts that not all clinicians can be trained the required standards in a 48-hour working week mandate due to the length of medical training and service demands. It explains the findings of a review by the Royal College of Physicians which revealed the declined quality of training.
