How to pay
Self or employer funded
If you or your employer are paying for the course there are a number of ways to pay:
- In most instances once your attendance on the course has been confirmed and a class list signed you will be invoiced for the amount shortly after the course start date (approx. 2 weeks)
- If you are being sponsored by a third party (i.e. your employer, or other organisation) then you will need to complete the ESSF payment form and submit a confirmation letter from your sponsor so that the invoice can be raised in their name. You can find an example sponsor letter here.
- You can contact our incomes office firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange payment or if you would like further information about the fees and costs you can contact email@example.com

If your chosen course qualifies for funding you may be eligible for a funded place provided by Health Education England across Yorkshire and Humber if you:

- are employed by an organisation within the HEE region
- are a specialist public health clinician which includes those clinical staff recently transferred from the NHS into Local Authorities,

The SSPRD application form asks for the required information in order to check your eligibility for funding (see points above). Failure to complete the form fully may result in a delay to your booking and / or being asked to pay for the course yourself.
If you are a GP, you will not be eligible for this funding so please see the instructions for payment above. For more information, contact Health Education Yorkshire and Humber: firstname.lastname@example.org.
