Practice Managers’ Resources

HEE working across Kent, Surrey and Sussex (KSS) recognises the important role that Practice Managers have in the training practice in supporting GP trainers, clinical supervisors and trainees in their Foundation and specialty training placements.

Trainer Grants – a ‘how to’ for practice managers

If you are a Training Practice hosting GP specialty trainees 1-3 or Foundation year two trainees, you are eligible to claim a Trainer Grant for each trainee in practice. You will receive correspondence to this effect at the start of each claim period from the CPD Team.

To assist in the claims process, please view a short presentation to help you in completing the relevant forms.

Trainee overlap process

The overlap process should be followed when claiming for the Trainer Grant if:

  • one GP Supervisor has two doctors in training concurrently for three months or longer
  • or one GP Supervisor has three doctors in training for any period of time

Both of these include GPSTs, FY2s and I&R doctors. As a reminder no GP Supervisor can take more than three doctors in training at any one time.
