The programme does not accept candidates on a self-funded basis.

Current trainees are full-time employees of the health service and have annual leave and other benefits in line with usual NHS entitlements. On entry to the programme all trainees are paid on the first spine point of Band 6 of the Agenda for Change pay scales. Travel expenses are paid for travel to placement, and university fees are paid directly by the NHS.

Although it is expected that funding arrangements will remain unchanged for trainees joining in 2018, we would advise candidates to check for funding updates on the Clearing House.
