Our Individual Award Scheme continues to be paused until 31st December 2021 and we will not be accepting any applications for funding.
Pausing individual staff awards allows us to concentrate our funding to support the staff and patients at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust through the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will post further updates about the future of the scheme here towards the end of 2021. For any queries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that applications must be submitted a minimum of three weeks prior to the date of the conference or activity applied for. Also, the Charity can only support a maximum of 2 people per department to attend the same conference.
Costs will vary depending on the particular staff development activity. The general principle is that amounts claimed should be reasonable and represent value for money. Only those costs that are directly associated with the individual’s participation in the activity will be reimbursed.
Please consider the following when making your arrangements. We will assess applications against these guidelines and may amend the amount applied for on award if necessary to ensure the guidelines are complied with. In addition, we will assess the claim, when it is submitted, against the guidelines.
Any registration or attendance fees necessary for the recipient to attend the staff development activity can be reimbursed. Fees for additional activities can be reimbursed if these activities are necessary for the recipient to benefit fully from the staff development activity. All claims must be accompanied by acceptable proof of attendance.
No other forms of transport are usually reimbursed.
