Deanery Profile...

There are many exciting places to work as a GP. There are a wide variety of different communities served by a range of different types of GP practice.

Greater Manchester area
Sophisticated, stylish, stimulating, and streets ahead, Manchester is the original 24-hour party city. From fine dining and chic hotels, to cutting-edge clubs and bars and the world's most progressive music scene, Manchester is the place to see and be seen.

There are also many great opportunities to train in the surrounding Greater Manchester area, including Salford, Trafford, Stockport, Tameside, Wigan, Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, Oldham. Each of these is a town with its own distinctive character, a wide variety of social and ethnic cultures and some great sporting venues.

Lancashire is home to some of the country's favourite seaside resorts, including Blackpool - Europe's biggest and brightest. Alternatively, for a more rural retreat Lancashire boasts the Forest of Bowland, Ribble Valley and Pendle Hill, all areas of renowned natural beauty.

The Lake District is inspirational at any time of year. From the spring daffodils immortalised by Wordsworth to the golden cloak of autumn's leaves, from sailing boats on sparkling summer lakes to the majestic snow-capped fells of winter. www.visitenglandsnorthwest.com

We offer a wide variety of GP Specialty Training Programmes. All are complete 3 year training programmes, with some opportunities to train flexibly. All our programmes provide a structured educational programme throughout the three years. There is an excellent trainee network, opportunities to be trained in all aspects of general practice and for relevant assessments with support from the North West England Faculty of the RCGP. All educational supervisors in the deanery have had training for their role in the training programmes.

For young principals settling in the North Western Deanery we have an established, highly regarded, two year University-accredited Professional Educational & Development course, which builds on the foundation of GP Specialty Training. All the programme directors, educators and trainers are happy to speak to doctors interested and the Deanery can provide careers advice.
