A controversial job application website for junior doctors has been suspended, amid fresh concerns of security lapses.The Department of Health said it was investigating claims that doctors were able to read each other’s messages.
The new concerns come a day after revelations that applicants’ personal information could be freely accessed.
The MTAS website has been the subject of protests from junior doctors. The Conservatives say the system is in “complete crisis”.
Channel 4 News reported that applicants had been able to see each other’s files by changing two digits in the personalised web address given to each individual.
