NHS England - North West: Postgraduate Medicine and Dentistry


Our Vision

Everyone associated with health care in the North West:

  • will strive for ever-increasing standards of patient centred care
  • will be committed to a lifetime of professional development
  • will be proud of the care they provide
  • will support and challenge one another

The North West Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education department sits within the Workforce, Training and Education directoriate of NHS England and oversees postgraduate medical education and training with a responsibility for over 7,000 trainees.

Our priority is to ensure that our trainees are confident in providing high quality patient care, supported by excellent trainers and underpinned by the GMC’s standards for medical education and training.


Academy and COPMeD Reflective Practice Toolkit

The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC), the Conference of Post-Graduate Medical Deans (COPMeD), the General Medical Council and the Medical Schools Council have jointly produced guidance on reflection which should be read in conjunction with this toolkit. These supersede the interim Academy guidance produced in April 2018.
