About us

Deans, Associate Deans, GP Directors & Assistant GP Directors

Our Postgraduate Deans, Associate Postgraduate Deans, GP Directors and Assistant GP Directors provide practical knowledge, experience and accountability for postgraduate medical training throughout Scotland.

The Scotland Deanery has four Postgraduate Deans and a GP Director. For information about the Dental Postgraduate Dean and Associate Postgraduate Dean, please refer to the dental section of our website.  

The day to day management of specialty training, including responsibility for the quality management of Specialty Training programmes, rests with the Postgraduate Deans and GP Director who are accountable to the Medical Director and NES. Each Dean or GP Director is responsible for one or more of the specialty groupings and works with Associate Deans, GP Associate Advisors, Training and Quality Managers and their teams to ensure the delivery of postgraduate medical training. 

The Executive Medical Director and Deputy, Postgraduate Deans and GP Director are ultimately accountable for managing the delivery of postgraduate medical training to the standards required by the regulatory body, the General Medical Council (GMC).

If you wish to contact any of the PGDs, APGDs or GP Directors please use our Contact Page: http://www.scotlanddeanery.nhs.scot/contact/
