holding answer 9 February 2004

General practitioners receive training in substance misuse treatment through the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) Certificate in the Management of Drug Misuse.

All GPs who applied for a place on the course this year were allocated a place and accompanying funding.

The Department has already allocated £3 million to the RCGP to support this training and recently approved a further £693,000 available to cover the costs of courses operating between April 2004 and March 2005.
