The provision of postgraduate medical education is a matter to be taken forward by the individual countries in the United Kingdom. However, it is clearly an area where the four United Kingdom governments and relevant professional and academic bodies need to work in close partnership. Our policy document Modernising Medical Careers was publicised jointly by the four UK health departments and we continue to liaise closely.
