Deanery Profile

In Scotland we are passionate about General Practice and the Scottish Executive place Primary Care at the heart of its vision for the Scottish NHS, as outlined in the Kerr report "Building a Health Service Fit for the Future". The four Scottish Deaneries are committed to working together to recruit the best candidates to GP training, provide the highest quality of General Practice training and therefore ensure that you, the future workforce for Scottish General Practice, are of the highest standards to deliver quality primary care to the population of Scotland.

Scotland is a beautiful country with wild rugged mountains and moors; remote and beautiful glens; moody lochs; outstanding coastline with undisturbed beaches and idyllic islands; vibrant cities; bustling rural towns; an abundance of wildlife from the shy Otter to the Soaring Eagle; and thatís before we mention the people who have a reputation for being warm, generous and welcoming. Our training programmes reflect the diversity of our country and people from those sited around remote and rural areas in some of the most beautiful locations to those in our cosmopolitan cities. There is something for every prospective GP in Scotland, once you come for a while few leave.

As you will see from the individual Programme descriptions we provide an extensive selection of three, two and one year GP specialist training programmes in a variety of hospital and training practices across Scotland. The programmes are supported by excellent teams of enthusiastic and committed trainers, course organisers, educational supervisors, programme directors, associate advisors and administrative staff. So please look at our individual programmes and apply to start on the route to one of the most fulfilling careers in Medicine.
