The London Deanery is responsible for postgraduate medical and dental training across London.
For the London Deanery we evaluated the demographic profile of trainee doctors across London in both 2008 and 2010. The aim of this work was to inform the deanery’s gender, disability and race equality impact assessments. The 2008 work was complemented by a major review of the extent to which cultural competence training was being provided by the London NHS to trainee doctors and dentists. For the cultural competence aspects of this review we worked as part of the Amquis consortium to source national and international good practice regarding cultural competence training.
