UPDATE - Access to expenses to support relocation reimbursement & excess mileage payments

Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, HEE intended to introduce a new, national framework across England for all trainees commencing training programmes from 5 August 2020. The purpose of the national framework is to ensure equality of treatment for all across the HEE regions.   At the request of the BMA, it has been agreed that this will not be implemented in August as sufficient consultation has not been able to take place given other priorities.   The framework is expected to be published later in the year following the completion of consultation with the BMA Junior Doctors Committee (JDC).  Once published, it will replace existing local guidance or arrangements in place for all doctors, dentists and public health trainees who commenced accredited HEE training programmes trainees in August 2020. By accepting a place on this training programme, you agree that your entitlement to reclaim expenses and removal costs will be subject to the new framework once it is introduced.
