If you need assistance when applying for leave, please review our guidance pages on requesting leave and expenses and/or the Study Leave Policy and guidance documents provided on our Resources & Guidance page (www.eastmidlandsdeanery.nhs.uk/policies/study_leave/ResourcesGuidance).
You may also wish to contact your Programme Office (Primary Care) or local Study Leave Co-ordinator (Foundation/Secondary Care), who are usually based in your local Education Centre. Depending on your query, you may need to contact an HEE East Midlands team. A list of all Study Leave Coordinators, relevant HEE teams and their contact details is available at the bottom of this page.
We also have new guidance available on the NHS Learning Hub, specifically about study leave in the East Midlands and Accent Leave Manager.
If you're unsure who to contact with your query, please check the below FAQs.
Placements are all managed by our Programmes Team; please contact the team on the appropriate address below:
Remember that expenses are not processed by HEE or automatically by Leave Manager; you will need to submit these through your employer's system.
Please contact the Study Leave Coordinator for your current placement (rather than the placement at the time of the study leave) first; they will manage processing your expenses claim through your employer's system. If there is a technical issue, they will redirect your query to the HEE Study Leave Team, but only if necessary.
Trainee details are primarily managed by our Programmes Team; please contact the team on the appropriate address below:
- For doctors in Foundation programmes: FoundationProgrammes.EM@hee.nhs.uk
- For doctors in General Practice programmes: GPProgrammes.EM@hee.nhs.uk
- For all other trainees on East Midlands training programmes: SpecialtyProgrammes.EM@hee.nhs.uk
