About Scotland Deanery

The Scotland Deanery was created on 1 April 2014 from the four previous Deaneries in Scotland. The Scotland Deanery is responsible for managing training and training programmes across the four Scottish regions. Staff in the regional teams work closely with the wider NHS through the regional workforce planning groups.

The Scottish model also allows our four regions to work together as part of the Medical Directorate of NES, ensuring equity of recruitment and management approach. National policies and working committees, such as Specialty Training Boards, mean that Scotland can deliver a consistently high quality approach, and allows us a stronger voice on a UK basis.

Our Postgraduate Deans provide strategic leadership and direction for postgraduate medical education and training to meet the requirements of the GMC.  They take advice from Royal Colleges and Faculties to assist them.  In doing so, they ensure consistent regional delivery of national and NES policies.

In this section you will find information on our offices and locations. There is also information on our key staff, their roles in the Deanery and the delivery of postgraduate medical training. You will also be able to see how we assure training and the framework of governance we work within.
