I am looking for information about doctors who have taken study leave overseas in the past 12 months (up to and including the month of January 2018). Please could you provide me with the following:
1. Please could you provide a list of doctors who have taken study leave overseas in the past 12 months (up to and including the month of January 2018) as part of their continued professional development. I do not expect you to name the doctors but please could you provide their job title/position, the dates of the study leave, the location (country and city), the name of the conference/purpose of the trip and how much money the trust spent (either directly or claimed back in expenses) on the trip. Details should include amount spent by the Trust on accommodation, flights, conference fees and any other related costs. Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust does not hold this information centrally. Obtaining this information would require the manual scrutiny of records. This would go above and beyond the timeframe specified under section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act.
2. Please could you state if the Trust has a specific allowance for how much doctors are able to claim towards their continued professional development each year. Junior doctors in training and Trust grade doctors have a study budget of £860 per annum and consultants have a budget of £1000 per annum.
