The Intrepid Deanery database is used to support the Postgraduate Dean for Wales who has responsibility for your training. All training grade posts are recorded on the Deanery database (from Foundation to ST7). These number about 3000 posts.

The Postgraduate Dean is the ‘owner’ of the database. The Welsh Government also has an interest. The database is managed within the Wales Deanery by the Intrepid Team. The software is owned and developed by Hicom Technology based in Guildford, Surrey.

The main functions of the database can be summarised as follows:

  • Tracking mechanism for Deanery funding of junior doctor training posts
  • Local (for Deanery/NHS Health Board purposes) and national reports (Welsh Government)
  • Quality Assurance of Training Grade Posts
  • Data Validation Tool
  • Management of Junior Doctor Study Leave by NHS Health Boards
  • Management of records of assessment outcomes for junior doctors
  • Meeting GMC information requirements regarding Educational Supervisors and SAS doctors in Wales and providing an information tool to manage responses to national surveys such as the Trainee Survey and Trainer Survey.
  • Core data on Person/Placement/Posts
  • Equality & Diversity Dashboard Report June 2017 [247KB]
