Study Leave

The following is a guide on how to apply for study leave as is detailed on the deanery website.

Download the study leave application form from HENW (https://www.nwpgmd.nhs.uk/study-leave). Please note the form is constantly being adjusted and updated so please do use the most up to date application form from the HENW website or your application will be rejected.

Complete sections A, B and C ensuring you have inserted estimation of expenses you expect to claim.

Email your completed form to your Supervisor and Rota Coordinator to obtain approval for the course / conference and the time respectively. Your Supervisor and Rota Coordinator should email you back confirmation of their approval.

Please note, study leave can be approved by:
1. Inserting an electronic signature image into the study leave application, or
2. Attaching an email from the relevant individual, stating that approval has been given.

Forward the two approval emails along with the application to the study leave administrator. This is EdStudyLeave@liverpoolft.nhs.uk for T&O trainees in Mersey.

The study leave administrator will then forward your request to the Training Programme Director.

You must then await an acknowledgement from the Deanery which will be emailed to you with a study leave expenses claim form.

You should submit your expenses claim form to the Deanery as soon as possible after the course / conference along with receipts.
