The final fill rate for 2014 recruitment rounds will be confirmed by Health Education England (HEE) once all trainees have started in their training posts.
HEE has also been mandated to ensure that 50% of trainees completing foundation level training enter GP training programmes by 2016. To achieve this, HEE plans to increase GP training to 3,250 places per year by 2016 from an average of approximately 2,700 per annum over the last 5 years (representing a 20% increase).
