Funding through the COVID-19 response

Updates related to HEE’s financial arrangements for the payments it makes to education and training partners through the COVID-19 period will be added to this page as when they are made.


HEE financial support – August 2020 onwards

From August 2020, HEE will be starting to return to business as usual for its payments.

  • Activity driven postgraduate medical and dental payments with begin again in August, to coincide with the new post rotations.
  • For all other activity driven payments, August 2020 will be paid on account. All other activity driven payments will restart from the start of September 2020.

From 1 August, Trusts will return to the normal practice of invoicing HEE and the first invoice should be for a period of three months (August – October 202). This will bring payments in line with the LDA for 2020/21.

HEE colleagues will soon be distributing an LDA Schedule to cover the financial transactions until the end of October.

For more information, please read the letter issued by HEE to Finance Directors at all NHS Trusts in England.
