Thank you for considering Paediatrics in the Yorkshire and the Humber Deanery. We are delighted to tell you that a massive breadth of paediatric experience is available within our training programme, including working in one of the few stand alone children’s hospitals. We have around 10% of the English population, about 5.2 million people, within our catchment area. We can also offer you access to the UK coastline (including Whitby, the village where Dracula landed in the UK), big city life (we have a branch of the Bank of England, not that they have any money at the moment), moorland walks (and it snows every year, the sledging is awesome), climbing at Stanage Edge, cycling up and down monster hills (on and off road), afternoon tea in Betty’s Tea Rooms - Harrogate (possibly the poshest tea room in the country) and no congestion charges! This is a very large geographical area, so we have 3 rotations to reduce commuting. Each rotation provides the core of paediatric experience. Importantly, there is equity of access to the sub specialities available across the deanery between the rotations.
Please explore the web site and advise us of any changes which you think would be of benefit by contacting our school administrator.
