To ensure the accreditation process remains fair and robust, extensions to logbook collection periods will generally only be given in the following circumstances:
- parental leave
- ill health of candidate or a dependent
Applications must be accompanied by supporting information, such as a letter from your line manager or a healthcare provider. Applications cannot be considered without this information.
