What is Period of Grace?
Modified on: Wed, 11 Oct, 2017 at 3:45 PM
Period of Grace enables doctors who have completed training and not yet obtained a Consultant post to continue in the Specialty Registrar grade contract for a time limited period whilst they find employment. The standard Period of Grace is six calendar months following the date of CCT/CESR (CP). The doctor is no longer considered to be in training, but in post for the purposes of service.
Please note that Period of Grace is not available on General Practice training programmes.
