Calls made on the services of doctors assisting police have increased in number, in complexity and in variation over the years. Such services have traditionally been given by general practitioners, working part-time and paid on a retainer plus item of service fee basis. Historically, such services were initially confined to attendance at cases of sudden or unexpected death, the health care of detainees and of police officers and their families. With the advent of the National Health Service (NHS) in 1948, responsibility for the primary health care of the latter shifted to the local general practices.

Because of the present training deficiency, there is already a tendency towards a two-tier FME service, with `generalists' who cope with daily `run-of-the-mill' cases, and `specialists' who are also competent, for example, in adult and child sexual abuse, and who are called upon specifically in these cases, but this is undesirable. It is the highest common denominator that is required, not the lowest. The next stage which, bearing in mind existing pressures, must follow in the development of CFM, will be mandatory training, assessment and accreditation of those doctors whose work takes them regularly to this interface.
