Background Summary Data: Competency assessment is changing with concepts of trainee autonomy decisions (termed entrustment decisions) being introduced to surgical training.
Methods: Data from the Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Programme (ISCP) and the eLogbook databases for all UK General Surgery trainees registered from 1st August 2007 who had completed training were used.

The proportion of all IPs recorded as unsupervised increased through training (p
