Study Leave


From 1st August 2017 the guidelines for study leave will be changing, once the new guidelines are confirmed to us we will put updated information on the website. These changes will impact study leave budget. This note was updated on 21st August 2017

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.
  • Approval/rejection letters will be sent or emailed to you, along with a claim form if applicable
  • If you have not received approval ONE week before the required leave date, please call the PGMC to check that your application has been received and is being processed
  • Completed claim forms should be returned, with all the appropriate receipts, within ONE month of attending the meeting/course
  • Reimbursements will be made via your monthly salary
  • The study leave funding given to Addenbrooke’s can only be applied for by clinicians working in Addenbrooke’s and your contract date must cover the period in which you are taking the study leave.

As you will be aware the Junior study leave budget distribution is under review by HEE. At present we are awaiting further instruction from HEE. In the meantime please do continue to submit your applications in the usual way we will advise you as soon as we receive any further information from HEE.

If you have any further queries please contact Mrs Jill Hodges ext. 3105 e-mail: (please note until these guidelines are confirmed to us we will be unable to advise on these changes)
