Hewitt and MTAS - an update

This Monday, 16th April, Patricia Hewitt made a statement to the House of Commons with an update on the shambolic new system of recruiting junior hospital doctors (MTAS) and the dysfunctional new system of training which is to start on 1st August.

In her statement she denied reports that thousands of young junior doctors were to find themselves jobless in three months time.

This evening I have been advised from a very senior and reliable source that the Department of Health is drawing up contingency plans for up to 10,000 trained junior doctors who may well find themselves on the scrapheap .

Has Mrs Hewitt no shame, or is lying so much of a politician's psyche that she simply cannot tell truth from fiction.
