Andrew Craven
Associate Dean - GP

I am a General Practitioner based in Lancaster and have been involved in training of general practitioners and other doctors since 1993.

I work for the Deanery as Associate Director of General Practice Education in Morecambe Bay.

At a local level I oversee the training of GPs’ throughout speciality training scheme, and advise on the continuing professional development of GPs’ in the local area.

I am available to give careers advice to doctors who wish to undertake GP training and those who are having difficulties during training.

I work closely with the local hospitals, clinical commissioning group and training practices.  I regularly have meetings with the organisers of undergraduate teaching in Morecambe Bay.

At a Deanery level I am involved in organising and running courses for trainer development. I oversee the certificate in GP Education based at the University of Central Lancashire. In addition I am the GP lead on Foundation training development for the Deanery.
