The National IDT Team recognises that sometimes people will not live together before they get married but this should not exclude them from the NIDT process. The following is a comprehensive list of all the evidence that can be provided under Criteria 4 – Committed Relationship:


EITHER a marriage certificate or civil partnership certificate.


OR 2 pieces of evidence of shared financial responsibility (Joint bank account statements, utility bills, joint mortgage/tenancy agreement)


OR 1 Piece of evidence of shared financial responsibility and any one piece of evidence from the list below


OR Any two pieces of evidence from the following list:

· Evidence of regular transfer of funds to partners account on bank statement (two or more transfers over a few months would be sufficient)

· Letter of intent from mortgage lender/rental company

· Letter of intent to marry from religious leader

· Evidence of travel to partner’s location on several occasions (train/coach/plane confirmation emails or tickets that show date of travel and destination. Two or more over a few months would be sufficient. Petrol receipts are not accepted)

· Beneficiary documents

· Wedding/venue deposit receipts

· Phone records that show calls to partner over a period of time (Partner’s number must also be proven)


If you are unsure whether something can be used as shared financial responsibility, please contact idtinfo@hee.nhs.uk


If you are applying because your partner has a job offer in another region you will also have to supply evidence of this in addition to the above.

• If your partner is a medic, please provide confirmation of training letter including start date

• If your partner is non-medic, please provide official job offer letter or contract, including start date
