Thanks to John and Carwyn for this very important issue. There are many arguments for expecting clinicians to be involved in education. One essential item I would flag is the association between being involved in education and improvements in patient care. There is a significant body of evidence that clearly links both – involvement in postgraduate GP education and patient outcomes.

Surely, this is as much (if not more so) an imperative for all involved in clinical care to also be involved in education for better patient outcomes, experience, and effective practice.
