Welcome to HEENW School of Radiology


The School of Radiology is a specialty school within Health Education North West, divided into two separate training programmes - one based in Liverpool (West), one based in Manchester, East Cheshire and Lancashire (East).


The East programme is based in Manchester and has fourteen participating NHS hospital trusts with seventeen training departments located across a large area from Macclesfield to Lancaster. There are three geographical sectors, each with a cluster of four hospitals. This training programme superceded the Manchester Radiology Training Scheme which had been successfully training Clinical Radiologists since 1975.


If you are interested in training in Clinical Radiology in the North West of England, please have a look around our site, particularly the About and Recruitment pages.

Trainee Greeting


The North Western Deanery School of Radiology is a fantastic training scheme comprised of a large number of trainees, motivated and experienced Consultant Radiologists and a well-structured teaching programme. The region has well established special interest training in all areas and is one a few schemes which provides a funded ST6 Interventional Radiology year. As the School Senior Trainee Representative  I work with other board members to improve training and regional ties through trainee feedback.
