Postgraduate bodies

Postgraduate bodies include Heath Education England and its local offices, the Scotland deanery, the Wales deanery and the Northern Ireland Medical and Dental Training Agency. They manage the delivery of postgraduate training and must show us they are meeting our standards.

Deaneries and local offices must check that their training locations meet the standards set out in Promoting excellence. In this guide we bring together useful information for postgraduate bodies to illustrate how we quality assure training locations, and approve trainers so that we can be sure our standards are met.
