Rotation Highlights

The North West deanery boasts a variety of specialist and trauma centres with rotation through the regional children’s and spinal teams. Operative numbers are abundant with high quality trainers throughout. We have very high retention of trainees to consultant posts who understand your training needs. We currently host 61 trainees (capacity 72) with a choice of sub-speciality and placement at ST7 & 8.

Research within the region has a strong track record and is undergoing a restructure to continue to improve opportunities via our local clinical and academic links at the University of Manchester. Our annual research day showcases ongoing work and is followed by the trainees’ ball. This year has seen the addition of academic run through posts with protected research time.

The educational programme has undergone a revamp to address trainees needs, from general T&O rotations early on with written exams and case discussions progressing to specific exam and viva preparation later. Our exam success has been outstanding this year, with a 100% pass rate (13 candidates).

The NW deanery link with Edge Hill University to deliver Medical Leadership and Medical Education modules towards PGCert in Education or Leadership.

Our TPD and Head of School are highly engaged to deliver the best training for you, especially in these challenging times.


Ghazal Hodhody

Hello! My Name is Ghazal and I am an ST6 trainee from the North West Deanery. I’m Manchester bred but lucky enough to have studied and trained all over the UK before settling back at home for my registrar training. I am a huge advocate for diversity in the deanery and keen to maintain the excellent reputation for surgical training that this deanery has had for a long time. I’m also the Chair of the North West Orthopaedic Research Committee and will always be happy for anyone to contact me with collaborative ideas! I play hockey in my spare time for my local club and I’m a general fitness enthusiast.
