The delivery of effective postgraduate education for doctors in trusts is becoming vital to secure the individual services of trusts. Increasingly, training requirements are impacting on the location of clinical services that NHS trusts provide. Failure to understand the benefits and drawbacks of providing postgraduate education could affect the long‐term strategic direction of trusts. The paper seeks to identify the case for investment, the need to address key deliverables to secure effective postgraduate education and the need for clinicians and managers to evaluate the effectiveness of such training for their organisations.
