ST3: Study Leave

CSA/RCA & AKT Revision Course Funding

Mid-Wessex GP trainees are entitled to study leave funding to go towards the costs of the AKT and RCA/CSA revision courses (not including military registrars).

Health Education England Wessex funding for these courses has been devolved to the Patch Offices. This means that trainees can ask the Patch Office for the subsidy code to book onto courses with RCGP Wessex. We do not reimburse the admin charges. We do not pay travel expenses. You can only claim for attendance at 1x CSA/RCA course and 1x AKT course during your GP training.

Trainees will need to register their interest with RCGP Wessex Faculty to attend these courses.  Trainees need to ask the Patch Office to provide them with the subsidy code when booking onto one of these courses.

Trainees will be asked to pay RCGP a non-refundable fee to book a place at the time of booking - £15 for AKT course and £50 for RCA course.  The Patch Office will then be invoiced for your place on the course (the remaining £70 for AKT course or £238 for RCA course).

Please email to request the subsidy code quoting which course you would like to book.

Please note that if you fail to attend or do not cancel your place within 7 days of the course taking place, the fees will still be charged.

How to claim:

If you book on a CSA/RCA/AKT course through another provider, the Mid-Wessex Patch Office will reimburse the equivalent course costs for the RCGP CSA/RCA revision course (up to £238) and the RCGP AKT revision course (up to £70).

Please complete a University of Winchester expense claim form - please read the guidance on how to complete University of Winchester expense claim form

You also need to provide a copy of your certificate of attendance and an original receipt of payment. Claims cannot be processed without these. These are then submitted, on your behalf, to Dr Heidi Penrose (AD) for approval, and if approved, payment will be made by BACS. Please note: study leave funding is in the form of reimbursement only, funding will not be paid prior to attendance.
