Getting Support

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 (

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 NHSE East Midlands team. A list of all Study Leave Coordinators, relevant NHSE 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.

I'm having trouble claiming expenses

Remember that expenses are not processed by NHSE or automatically by Leave Manager; you will need to submit these through your employer's system. For exceptions to the reimbursement process (specified programmes) please visit our Resources page.

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 NHSE Study Leave Team, but only if necessary.

I have changed my email address; who should I inform?

Postgraduate learner details are primarily managed by our Programmes Team; please contact the team on the appropriate address below:

Please note that your contact email and Accent login are linked; if your contact email is updated, this will also update your Accent login email.

I have forgotten/not received my login details, how can I access the system?

You can request your login details from the Accent homepage at any time: go to and click on ‘Forgotten password’ – type in the email address that you have registered with NHSE (the address held on the Trainee Information System, TIS) and click Send reset password link. Your login credentials will then be emailed to you from - you may need to check your junk/spam folder as your email provider may filter the email.

If you do not receive login credentials, email with your first name, surname, GMC/GDC number and preferred email address.  Please put “Applicant Login Request” in the subject.
