What reimbursements can I claim for as a trainer?
As a GP trainer you are eligible to apply for various funds:
· A trainer’s grant for each trainee who is in practice with you – for GPStRs (St1/2/3) this comes from the TVPCA and for F2 doctors this comes from the Foundation School.
o Currently (Jan 2013) the trainers grant is £7645 for each twelve month period.
· For each trainee for whom you are ES, but who is NOT currently in practice with you, you can claim the educational supervisor’s allowance of £500 per year (or pro rata).
· You can also claim a CPD allowance (GP Specialty trainers only, not Foundation supervisors) on submission of an educational PDP, including evidence of equality and diversity training, to the Deanery. This is (as of Jan 2013) £750.
