Our weekly round-up of news in brief

PMETB consults on fee increases
The Postgraduate Medical Education Training Board (PMETB) is consulting doctors and stakeholders on possible fee increases. The board said the suggested fee levels would allow it to become an ìeffective and financially independent leader and champion of postgraduate medical educationî. Following a consultation in December last year, additional funding was made available by the four UK Health Departments to graduate increases, reducing the level of fees charged from PMETB's suggested £750 for a CCT (Certificate of Completion of Training) to £500 and £1,250 for an equivalence route application to £950. The latest consultation again proposes the £750 and £1,250 fee levels. ìOnly through raising fees and exploring other streams of income, can we fulfill our statutory duty of maintaining excellence and promoting postgraduate education,î said PMETB chief executive, Paul Streets.
