Please note, relocation is not an allowance.


While trainees can claim up to £8000.00 this is for the duration of their training from Foundation to CCT, irrespective of training region. If a trainee moves a region and has previously claimed relocation expenses, their allowance does not reset.

Claims of up to £8000.00 can be made from FY1 to CCT (Certificate of Completion of Training) per trainee when the eligibility criteria provided in the policy is met. 


Please note that reimbursement of all relocation expenses is subject to a limit of £500 maximum for trainees during their Foundation Year 1 and subject to a limit of £4000 maximum for trainees during their Foundation Year 2.


As part of establishing your eligibility to claim, it is the responsibility of the trainee to confirm the new claim does not exceed this limit, therefore it is the trainee’s responsibility to include any previous relocation reimbursements from FY1 on-wards and inclusive of all HEE regions.


Please note claiming fraudulently may result in the Employer recouping monies from the individuals salary and a probity referral to the GMC.
