A survey of doctors and managers found agreement that management training should be given at various stages of a doctor's career. Managers felt strongly that doctors should receive management training in groups with other staff. Doctors believed clinical budgets should be under doctors' control, but managers were opposed to this. The results suggested that a 'them and us' culture persists between managers and doctors in the NHS.
