An innovative six-month, two sessions a week, funded clinical attachment programme was devised and introduced for practical training and experience to meet the demands and requirements of those wishing practical experience and training in genitourinary medicine. This has been generated by interest from previous theoretical teaching and as a desire to provide Level 2 services in the community. To date four doctors have completed this training with excellent mutual evaluation and a recognition by all involved, including commissioners, of the importance of maintaining a regular formal session while providing Level 2 community sexual health services. To be formally recognized improved evaluation, standardization and certification are required. However, if pursued, this package with continuing specialist links should prove beneficial to all involved and with the current epidemic of sexually transmitted infections will improve and enhance available services.
