Although funding for postgraduate medical education forms part of the wider multi professional education and training (MPET) budget, it is not a separate funding stream. This is in order to provide strategic health authorities (SHAs) with flexibility to address local workforce priorities within the national framework set out in the education and training service level agreement between SHAs and the Department.
In 2011-12, the MPET budget is £4.9 billion. The cash budgets for MPET in 2012-13 will be maintained at the level of this financial year. The level of funding for the remainder of the comprehensive spending review has not yet been confirmed but will reflect the ongoing requirements of the national health service workforce.
