Abstract:I hope 2007 will prove a happy year for countless SHOs seeking to achieve a national training number (NTN) through the transitional selection process, which begins on 22 January. I have previously stated that this is the best year for the current SHOs to achieve an NTN: I remain confident that this will prove to be the case. I am less confident that all of the funding required to support such appointments will be there after reports of Strategic Health Authorities (SHAs) raiding the Medical and Dental Education Levy (MADEL) budget for training in order to address NHS deficits.
