News in brief: Review of Modernising Medical Careers

Health secretary Patricia Hewitt announced an independent long-term review of the Modernising Medical Careers (MMC) programme looking at 2008 and beyond. Membership of the panel is still to be confirmed. Ms Hewitt said: ‘I want the review particularly to look at how the processes involved in delivering MMC meets the needs of the service, employers and doctors in training.’ A DoH Review Group is already looking at the much-criticised programme for this year. The BMA have welcomed the review but said that it did not go far enough. A spokesman said: ‘We need more than this — we need urgent action now.’
