Funding and costs

Is there a cost involved in enrolling with a PCS?

Yes there is an annual fee approved by the Medical Council. PCSs are being run on a not-for-profit basis.

The postgraduate training body costs are reviewed annually as part of the Medical Council accreditation process and the fee adjusted as appropriate.

My employer does not reimburse me for expenses around professional competence.

The employment contract between the doctor and the employer is an industrial relation issue and therefore outside the remit of the training bodies.

PGTB are unable to answer questions that relate to the employment contract.
