The staff and associated specialist grade in psychiatry represents a large proportion of the non-consultant career grade workforce in some areas of the UK, with no direct equivalent worldwide. The advent of separate funding for continuing professional development (CPD) in England offers an opportunity to commission bespoke educational resources for a group of doctors who deliver front-line clinical care.
