British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO) has been actively engaged over the last 3 years in seeking solutions for the ongoing recruitment and retention crisis of experienced doctors in the Emergency Departments of NHS.
Our pilot project in 2011 at Weston Area Health Trust (WAHT) in collaboration with colleagues from Society of Emergency Medicine India (SEMI) & MAX Healthcare, India, resulted in recruitment and retention of experienced doctors via Medical Training Initiative (MTI) scheme.
Now, BAPIO has collaboratively designed a reinvigorated and expanded MTI project (CESR3) for various NHS Trusts, engaging various stake holders from the UK and India.
Following discussion of CESR3 Project with Rt.Hon. Jeremy Hunt MP, Secretary of State for Health, Health Education England (HEE) invited BAPIO to share its work in Emergency Medicine.
A workshop is being conducted by BAPIO on 21st March afternoon at Bristol, in which Health Education England (HEE), interested NHS Trusts and stake holders of the CESR3 project will share implementation details of the project plans.
