Professor Dobb said "Our hospitals are currently busier than ever, we have an increasing number of medical graduates, and the total amount of time and resources that can be dedicated to supervision activities is stretched to the limit. This all means that maintaining quality clinical supervision and assessment presents a significant challenge to governments, to hospitals, to supervisors, and to trainees."
