Yorkshire is exciting and diverse and geographically is
one of the largest Deaneries. It covers the counties of North and East
Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. The Deanery encompasses the cities of Leeds
and Bradford, numerous smaller cities and towns including York and
Harrogate, market towns such as Settle and Thirsk and seaside towns like
Scarborough and Filey. It combines superb shopping, entertainment and a
lively pub/club culture, with stunning countryside and coastline.
Yorkshire is one of the most picturesque areas of the United Kingdom, and
includes two of the UK’s twelve National Parks: the North Yorkshire Moors
and Yorkshire Dales.
The Yorkshire Deanery offers a well-qualified and
experienced network of Trainers and Educationalists committed to high
quality education for General Practice. There are many exciting new
educational developments including a variety of innovatory posts (for
example: community based obstetrics/gynaecology, community based
palliative care and community based paediatrics).
Twelve Vocational Training Schemes (VTS) coordinate
Yorkshire’s postgraduate education for general practice: Airedale,
Bradford, Harrogate, Northallerton, Dewsbury, Pontefract, and Wakefield,
Halifax and Huddersfield, Hull, Leeds, Scarborough and York. A range of
training schemes are offered, from structured 3-year schemes, to
customised schemes tailored to meet individuals’ needs.
