ST3: Study Leave

CSA / AKT Revision Course Funding

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

Health Education England – Wessex previously funded pre-paid places on RCGP AKT and CSA courses. The funding for these courses has now 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 (£45 for CSA and £15 for AKT). We do not pay travel expenses. You can only claim for attendance at 1x CSA course and 1x AKT course during your GP training.

Trainees will need to ask the Patch Office to provide them with the subsidy code when booking onto one of these courses. The Patch Office will then be invoiced for your place on the course. Please email to request the subsidy code quoting which course you would like to book.

How to claim:

If you book on a CSA/AKT course through another provider, the Mid-Wessex Patch Office will reimburse the course costs for the RCGP CSA revision course (up to £350) and the RCGP AKT revision course (up to £150).

Please note: study leave funding is in the form of reimbursement only, funding will not be paid prior to attendance.
