From April 2013 the entity South West Peninsula Deanery transferred to Health Education South West under the implementation plans associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

As a result of this transfer the South West Peninsula Deanery name has been rebranded South West Peninsula Postgraduate Medical Education.  All other deaneries in England are being similarly rebranded.
