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); for our Postgraduate Dean to review.

Three Surgical Trainees Wanted for Mammary Fold Academic Subcommittee

Dear surgical trainees,

The Mammary Fold, the National Breast Trainees Group, is keen to recruit three surgical trainees to form an academic subcommittee, which will be supported by the Association of Breast Surgery (ABS) Academic & Research Committee. The three appointed members will have key roles in forming and running a national research collaborative, studying all aspects of breast surgery. This will also be an opportunity to further enhance their research, leadership and management skills, while delivering trainee-led research in breast surgery at a national level.

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, along with a short covering letter (250 words) supporting your application. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, the 2nd of September, 2014.

The appointments for the post will be made under the guidance of the ABS Academic & Research Committee. For further enquiries, please email Dennis Remoundos at

A Charter for Postgraduate Medical Training

The Academy Trainee Doctors' Group has produced 'A Charter for Postgraduate Medical Training' on behalf of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges. This Charter describes a set of guiding principles to ensure the highest standard of doctors’ training and quality of care. It also makes specific recommendations for commitments based on these principles which emphasise training priorities while recognising the responsibilities of doctors in training.

AOMRC Doctors in training

 The Charter was written in consultation with stakeholders including the medical royal colleges and faculties, the General Medical Council and the Shape of Training Expert Advisory Group. Professor David Greenaway’s report ‘Securing the future of excellent patient care: Final report of the independent review’ highlighted the Charter and its potential to help with the challenges of delivering both training and service. The Charter was published in full as an annex to this report.
We are currently sending the Charter to all groups involved in medical training and to doctors in training via Trainee representatives. You may well be contacted in this regard and we are expecting doctors in training to have further ideas on how to disseminate the charter (for example, by including it in induction or welcome packs).
We believe the Charter has the potential to provide an excellent foundation for delivering training and high quality care and I hope you will share our enthusiasm for this work.
