East Midlands covers an area from Worksop & Retford in the north to
Northampton in the south and from the Peak District in the west to the
East Coast of Lincolnshire. We have great transport links whether
travelling by rail or road, as the M1 is on our doorstep, or by air as
East Midlands Airport is on the border of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and
Leicestershire. More about the area can be found
Our Vocational Training Schemes offer 20 months in General Practice. We
are the first deanery in the UK to offer this for General Practice
training. It will offer the opportunity to spend time in your chosen
specialty for in posts in ST1 and ST2 as part of the training programme,
as well as the year as ST3.
We provide a range of educational opportunities through the variety of
programmes available within the 10 Vocational Training Schemes. The
programmes range from the large city based Schemes such as in the
Leicester, Derby and Nottingham schemes to the smaller more rural ones in
Worksop & Retford and Rutland.
The Deanery recognises the importance of adult education where GP
registrars are given the opportunity to develop so as to allow them to
enjoy a lifetime's career in General Practice.
We have a long history of innovation and seek to maximise the
opportunities of the changes to Specialty training to provide programmes
that prepare our future GPs for practice and lifelong learning.
