Statutory Deferred Entry

UK applicants can defer the start of their ST1 programme on statutory grounds such as personal ill health or maternity/paternity/adoption leave in line with the Gold Guide.


Non-statutory Deferred Entry

From Round 2 Re-advert 2020, successful applicants appointed to England, Scotland or Wales recruitment can no longer apply to defer entry to GP training on non-statutory grounds; non-statutory deferment has never been permitted in Northern Ireland.
