Doctors - email your trainee group NOW!

The BMA have produced an excellent statement on the 'Shape of Training' review and a large number of trainee groups have rightly signed up to reject the review in its current dangerous form.  The groups which have signed up are:

Association of British Neurologists Trainees
Association of Clinical Pathologists trainees group
Association of Otolaryngologists in Training
Association of Palliative Medicine trainees group
Association of Surgeons in Training
National Dermatology Trainee Committee
British Junior Cardiologists Association
British Medical Association Junior Doctors Committee
British Orthopaedic Trainees Association
British Society of Gastroenterology Trainees' Committee
Oncology Registrar Forum
Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists Trainee Committee
Royal College of Ophthalmologists Ophthalmic Trainees Group
Royal College of Radiologists Junior Radiologists Forum
Young Diabetologists' and Endocrinologists' Forum

There are a number of notable groups who have not signed up despite a total lack of interest in consulting their members on this potentially destructive review.  I have collated a list of email addresses for those of you who belong to the following groups, please email them and ask them why on earth they have no supported the BMA's statement:

Medics (Royal College Physicians)
Emergency medicine
Pharmacuetical medicine
Paediatrics and Child Health
