Study Leave



HEE have amended the current study leave allocation, (per training post) to the Trust, from £600 to £400 per annum with effect from the 1st August 2017.

If your Study Leave application is for more than £400 please continue to send in your application for the full amount required, but be aware that at the moment PGMC will only be able to process approvals and claims up to the amount of £400 per trainee. For requests greater than £400 the PGMC will retain a copy of your paperwork on file and seek advice from HEE and CUH regarding any additional funding.

We have added a link, to a list of TPD's / Head of Schools, located on the right hand side of this page. You should contact them to seek guidance and advice on whether your application falls under the approved list of Curriculum based / Mandatory courses.

Requirements of the study leave process:

  • Study leave applications MUST be signed by your Educational Supervisor and Consultant (Juniors), SDU Director (Consultants) BEFORE submitting to the PGMC
  • Applications should reach the PGMC 6 weeks prior to the meeting date.
