National Lead Dean Guidance re SL and Covid-19

Dear Colleague

As we prepare for the impact of COVID 19 a number of queries have come to us with regards to HEE’s approach to study leave. Please be advised that the position is as follows:

Impact of Coronavirus On Study Leave for Doctors in Training

Trainees should endeavour to obtain a refund for any pre-booked expenses. If they unable to do so we will honour the claim, but they should provide evidence when they submit their claim that the expense was non-refundable.

All requests for study leave time not taken during the outbreak will be properly considered by the employers and Postgraduate deans and will be subject to the need to maintain NHS services, and training requirements for completion of programmes.

We are asking all parties to be flexible both during and after this difficult time.

HEE will be developing a set of FAQs to help manage the queries that are arising.

If there are unresolved queries please contact us via Study Leave (SW); StudyLeave.SW@hee.nhs.uk for our Postgraduate Dean to review.

The successful applicants will have an active role in designing and conducting future studies, facilitating and disseminating other trainee collaborative group projects, as well as the projects of the ABS Academic & Research Committee. Selected trainees will also be expected to liaise with regional representatives and have an active role in co-ordinating local trainee involvement.

Applications are welcome from both academic and non-academic trainees at all levels of training. To apply, please send a copy of your Curriculum Vitae to themammaryfold@gmail.com, along with a short covering letter (250 words) supporting your application. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, the 2nd of September, 2014.
