The system changed in 1996, when there were grandfathering options, which meant that at that particular point all doctors who were full-time working doctors were actually considered to be vocationally registered. The people who actually missed out primarily were, in many cases, women who took time out to raise kids or perhaps were overseas or working in hospitals at the time. Would the minister consider grandfathering existing doctors? (Time expired)
