About Mersey Deanery
Mersey Deanery is a non-statutory organisation and is co-terminus with the Cheshire and Merseyside boundaries (2,265,000 population¹). Since October 2011, as a consequence of ‘Equity and excellence: Liberating the NHS’, the Deanery as part of the former NHS North West comes under NHS North of England as the current statutory body.
From April 2013, the Deanery will be part of a Local Education and Training Board under Health Education England; a Special Health Authority accountable to the Secretary of State for Health.
