Educational Supervision & Continued Professional Development Claims for the 21/22 financial year please see instructions below:

Payments are now automatically made for CPD and ESR, without any need for an invoice. An affirmation survey has therefore been sent to all GP trainers to complete by Friday 25th June 2021.  If you have not received this survey please e-mail with your details as soon as possible and they will arrange for the survey to be sent to you.  HEE will then make the appropriate payments via NHSE. No invoices are required, and practices will be able to see these payments in open Exeter.  

Please do not submit any invoices for CPD/ES payments.

Who is Eligible for CPD?

The CPD allowance is for approved GP Trainers only. Below are the guidelines for eligibility

To qualify for these payments’ trainers must adhere to the following;

(1) Active GP trainers (within the last 2 years)

(2) Currently on the Performers List 

(3) Maintain performance as a GP Trainer which must be evidenced in NHS appraisal documentation

Apologies for adding to your administrative burden but we hope that this new process will be more straightforward for both you and your practice manager.

Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
