The MPhil and PhD are two different qualifications. However, many universities do not register research students for PhDs at first. Initially students are registered for MPhils and then, if progress is considered to be satisfactory, are upgraded to PhD status at a later date, usually one to two years in. In this way it is not necessary to complete an MPhil before starting a PhD, but you may have to initially register as an MPhil student and pass an upgrade to progress to a PhD.

Have a look at Southampton. They have a very good Clinical Doctorate and you do not need a masters for it. Good luck
