Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses

Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses (TDAE) will reimburse excess costs incurred when undertaking practical training on placements.

When to submit a TDAE claim

You can submit a TDAE claim as many times as you like, we recommend allowing at least one week’s worth of claims before sending in a claim.

You have 9 months from the last date of the placement period you’re claiming for to submit your claim.

You should complete the full document and send this, along with your evidence, to your university. Your university must endorse and sign your TDAE claim form before it can be submitted to us.

Once your university has approved your claim, you will need to upload the summary page on the back of the form to your NHS LSF account.

Any claims that have not been countersigned will not be considered.
