9 Workforce   Recent review of psychiatry workforce by Centre for Workforce Intelligence   Conclusions awaited   There will be increasing pressure to reduce core posts   At present we have a 50% loss rate from core to higher training   25% of trainees are in London   Will be looking at what happens to London trainees after CCT November 2013

10 Foundation training   The target in England is 45% of foundation doctors should rotate through a four month placement in psychiatry in England   22.5% in F1 and 22.5% in F2   Have appointed a College Advisor for Foundation training, Ann Boyle. She is setting up a network of foundation trainers and writing a good practice guide. November 2013

11 Foundation Posts   Around half of schools are on target to deliver the required increases by 2015 in psychiatry placements with greater progress at F2.   A further 25% are making good progress   The rest are encountering significant challenges. November 2013

29 Responsive broad- based training Restructure postgraduate training within broad specialty areas Review curricula to deliver broader specialty training Ensure all doctors able to manage acutely ill patients with multiple comorbidities within broad specialty area Greater employer involvement in coordination of training
