There are too few registrar posts in obstetrics and gynaecology to allow every consultant to have his own consultant led team. This situation is dealt with in practice by senior house officers acting up, by both senior house officers and registrars working 1 in 2 rotas, and by consultants working some of the time without a middle grade of staff. The accepted belief that most district hospitals work with three tier teams of consultants, registrars and senior house officers is not borne out by reality.
