This article from the BBC reports that medical school training places are set to rise in 2018 …. 

The number of medical school places will increase by 25% from 2018 under plans to make England “self-sufficient” in training doctors.Graphic

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt is to announce an expansion in training places from 6,000 to 7,500 a year.

He believes increasing the number of home-grown doctors will be essential given the ageing population.

There is also concern it will become more difficult to recruit doctors trained abroad in the future.

About a quarter of the medical workforce is trained outside the UK, but the impact of Brexit and a global shortage of doctors could make it harder to recruit so many in the future.

Prime Minister Theresa May told the BBC: “We want to see the NHS able to recruit doctors from this country. We want to see more British doctors in the NHS.”

The increase also comes after the health secretary has spent a year at loggerheads with junior doctors over the pressures being placed on them to fill rota gaps.
