The Calman Report proposed a new Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST) to be awarded to those successfully finishing a Royal College-recognised training programme. Unfortunately the medical establishment has so far refused to give this certificate full legal status.
The Liberal Democrats will be seeking all-party support for an amendment to the Medical Act this autumn for the creation of legal recognition of specialists and the use of the title 'specialist' to be restricted to holders of the CCST.
