What is a Deanery?

Within the UK there are currently (2010) 16 NHS Deaneries, 1 Armed Forces. Deaneries are organisations responsible for the management of postgraduate medical training programmes which start with Foundation programmes and span the whole of specialty training until the completion of a Certificate of Completed Training (CCT).

Deaneries are also responsible for the delivery of post- graduate medical education and for the continuing professional development of all doctors and dentists. This includes ensuring that all training posts provide the necessary opportunities for doctors and dentists in training to realise their full potential and provide high quality patient care.

Deaneries also provide the infrastructure to recruit to medical training programmes and manage the programmes to standards which are 1) agreed by The Royal Colleges 2) established in curricula and quality Assured by the GMC. In order to fulfil this task they have highly experienced teams in all aspects of medical education and training, and are co-signatories to educational contracts with Trusts and Strategic Health Authorities that manage the funding streams. Deaneries are an important resource for advice and support outside the Trust. Deaneries also administer Less Than Full Time Training (LTFTT / Flexible) (see our LTFTT page for more details).
