The National Evaluation of Specialty Selection (NESS) covers the selection processes for 71% of 4,060 training posts in England and 2,751 General Practice (GP) posts in the UK available at ST1/CT1 level in 2009, making it the largest evaluation of specialty selection in the world. Designed as a cross-sectional study using quantitative and qualitative methods, the report describes and analyses the effectiveness and suitability of selection processes across 13 specialties. Taking account of the GMC’s requirement that ‘processes for recruitment, selection and appointment must be open, fair and effective’, our principal analytical model examined the acceptability, reliability, validity and cost-effectiveness of the selection processes.
