How do I apply to defer my London or KSS Specialty post?

Modified on Wed, 11 Oct 2023 at 02:50 PM

Please note, for all specialties you are only able to apply for deferral for statutory reasons, i.e. personal long term ill health (which you will need to provide a medical certificate of) or maternity/paternity/adoption leave in line with the Reference Guide for Postgraduate Specialty Training in the UK (The Gold Guide, 9th Ed.). No other deferral requests will be accepted. Therefore please only complete the form below if you are applying on statutory grounds. 

You can submit a request to defer here. 

The Healthcare Education Team team will be in contact with you to provide further information within 2 weeks.

If none of the FAQs have answered your question, please submit an enquiry to the team by clicking here
