Annual Assessment of NCHD Posts

Part 10 of the Medical Practitioners Act 2007 (MPA2007) defines the legislative responsibilities of the Health Service Executive in relation to medical and dental education and training. A key responsibility defined for the HSE is the requirement to assess on an annual basis the number of intern posts and the number and type of specialist medical training posts required by the health service.

The HSE is furthermore required to assess on an annual basis the need for and appropriateness of NCHD posts which are not utilised or required for the purposes of medical training. The HSE is required to publish the results of each of its annual assessment.

To date, the HSE has published nine such annual assessment reports.
