Trainers Grants (automatic payment no invoice required)

Trainer Grants for GP Practices in the East Midlands will now be made at the end of each rotation (still every 4 months during ST3). Payments will continue to be made directly to the practice from HEE, a daily rate will be applied pro rata, calculating the applicable TG based on the period the trainee is in the practice.

The practice will not receive a Trainer Grant if a trainee is on long term sick leave. However, HEE will support Phased returns with no reductions made.

From the 1 April 2023 the rate of payment has increased to £9,794  per annum.

Each supervisor will be able to claim £250 for 6 month or less of supervision

2.  We have a Registrar who started in Feb 2018 and went on maternity leave in May 2018 (due to return in May 2019).  Do we include this on the return?

Each supervisor will be able to claim £250 for 6 month or less of supervision

3. We have four new GP Registrars starting on 6th February 2019.  Should we capture the relevant information in this return?
