Annual review of Specialist Registrars, and production of a record on in-training assessment, is a mandatory component of training. Mersey Deanery has established a system of review that incorporates a wider evaluation of the trainee's needs and future requirements. The aim of the study was to ascertain whether the review process was perceived by trainees and trainers to be beneficial, and identify areas of potential improvement. 1093 questionnaires, inviting answers on ten point scales, were distributed between September 2000 to September 2001. 914 (83.6%) questionnaires were returned, 605 (66.2%) from trainees and 309 (33.8%) from trainers. The process was thought to be of benefit (trainees mean score = 8.29, trainers mean score =8.63). Trainees particularly appreciated advice on careers (511 free text responses), future training (122) and research (37). The review process was of benefit to both trainees and trainers.
