To receive the annual CPD payment, ALL GP trainers will need to complete a yearly affirmation survey. If you have not received this survey, please e-mail with your details 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 on their PCSE statement.
