While some regions have merged (North West and South West) you will still have the same choice when it comes to selecting your training region. 

That means for the purposes of National IDT you will still be able to list both South West Peninsula and Severn and both North Western and Mersey. 

Programmes within larger geographies may be administered by only one region, please check local information regarding who runs which programme before applying. We have links to websites here http://specialtytraining.hee.nhs.uk/National-IDT/Regions or you can find out through local IDT contacts(http://specialtytraining.hee.nhs.uk/portals/1/Content/Resource%20Bank/Inter-Deanery%20Transfer/Contact%20List.pdf)
