    Hi all,
    I have a place for Neurophysiology at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and have just received my conditional offer from them along with my contract. It states my salary will be band 4 £19,217 but I was under the impression that the salary started at £25,000 (or band 6)? Has anyone else had a problem?

    With regards to Aston Uni requesting evidence of course funding, I replied to my offer email asking about it and received the following:
    'Thank you for accepting your offer of a place on the MSc Clinical Science (Neurosensory Sciences. I know your place is on the NHS Scientist Training Programme (STP) and therefore the tuition fees are funded by the NHS. However, you have been sent the standard offer email as The University has to legally send out certain information i.e. Proforma cancellation form, Terms and conditions of enrolment etc.
    Kind regards,
    Ramila'
    So I've left it at that

    It was definitely advertised as band 6. I'd speak to them and ask them about it? I've only just had my offer letter emailed over today after I pushed for it. They're still preparing my contract so haven't received it yet, but expecting it to say band 6 with the minimum band 6 salary.

    I have been in touch with people in my department but I am still waiting to hear from HR. I haven't even had anything through yet...occy health or anything, let alone any contracts! I got back in touch with my contact earlier in the week and he said that it is still with HR and management....so annoying waiting. I just want it all official and confirmed!

    Thank you welly909, I emailed NSHCS Recruitment and they confirmed it should be band 6 and sent me the relevant documents. Thankfully I then emailed my new manager and she also agreed it should be band 6 and sent me the document outlining all the funding they are receiving for me! She has also sent it to HR so hopefully they will amend my contract now. Major panic almost over!

    Hi are you direct entry or in service, i'm being told by my trust also that i will possibly not be on band 6, because i'm an in service applicant apparently the trust pays my wages and my academic fee is funded by HEE. I hope my trust are wrong and that i can get some additional funding, my contract has not been sorted either yet.

    Congrats! I'm Neurophys at Bristol, look forward to meting you!I replied about the Aston thing on the previous page so have a look there, basically this is a new requirement and NSHCS are working through them> i sent them another email today to remind them Aston want it (from me at least) by July 31st.

    My initial letter from Bristol hospital stated a higher salary in error, I think these are done on a proforma basis and the details are worked through on the contract. If you've received your actual contract and that states £19,217 then that's an issue - don't sign it, contact your HR contact and query it with them.Good luck!

    I think she's direct entry as I know Gloucester were doing a direct entry NPhys position and it's unlikely they'd do both.

    So NSHCS got back to me and apparantly we don't need a letter anymore, when you accept your offer from Aston you just need to state
    "I am a Scientific Training Programme (STP) student. "

    I feel your pain!! I emailed my contact so many times and called HR and they didn't know anything about it and theng my contact said that my post hadn't been agreed yet and that they had a new director of operations who needed to approve my post, I was panicking so much! But it finally got confirmed and then I called up HR to hurry them along because I needed to hand in my resignation at my current job so that I could work 4 weeks notice! I had all the pre-employment check forms and the DBS application link through a day later and got my offer letter last week. Can you call up the hospital and ask to speak to the HR department directly?

    Hi everyone!

    I've been on the reserve list for respiratory, and I've just been offered a place at Oxford! Can anybody help me with details of what I need to do now, as I feel i'm really far behind and have no idea what I should be doing about accommodation etc or even what uni i'm going to be at?!

    Is anybody still looking for house shares in Oxford?

    Thanks in advance!

    Congratulations on your offer!

    You can contact NSHCS by email/phone to get the contact info of your training supervisor at the trust, failing that then you could just call the department directly and they should be able to put you in touch with the right person.

    I'm not doing respiratory but from what I can tell this course is offered at both Manchester and Newcastle (http://www.nshcs.hee.nhs.uk/accredit...ademic-courses) so you'd need to find out from your employer which you would be at. Your employer will normally cover the cost of accommodation for uni but it can vary so best to check that with them.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi, I am direct entry. However I'm told there will be an in-service applicant also in my dept at Gloucester (don't remember seeing it advertised!). Best of luck for your battle!

    Hi FUNEX! I look forward to meeting you too! Thankfully my contract has now been sorted and is the correct salary And as per your later post, I thought that was the case(not needing a letter) as I resolved it very easily with one email stating I am studying through the STP

    I'll be in Newcastle for 6 weeks too. I was thinking of the euro hostel or airbnb.
