Inter Deanery Transfers
The national timeline for Inter-Deanery Transfers (IDTs) for 2013 is currently being awaited from the Department of Health. There will be changes to the process and we have been informed that there will be one window per year only as opposed to the two windows we have had in place up until now.
We will update this page as soon as this information is received.
Trainees wishing to move between deaneries may apply for an inter-deanery transfer provided that certain specific criteria for eligibility are met. Transfers must be approved at the home deanery before being considered by the receiving deanery. To ensure a consistent approach across all deaneries and specialties there are national guidelines governing the movement of Specialist and Specialty trainees (SpRs / StRs / GP StRs) between Deaneries and inter-deanery transfer of NTNs / Core Training Numbers (DRNs). You must read this document before submitting an application.

Transferring in to the South West Peninsula
If you wish to transfer to the South West Peninsula from another Deanery you must apply to your own Deanery in the first instance. If the Dean in your region approves your request your Deanery will forward your application to the South West Peninsula Deanery. Your application will be considered by a panel then, if approval is granted, it will be passed to the Training Programme Director in your specialty. If you are offered a place on the training programme the transfer can be completed.
Application Process / Forms
Trainees who wish to transfer out of the South West Peninsula must complete the 'Inter-Deanery Transfer Application Form' below.
