Practice Placement Expenses Contribution (The "Travel Disregard"): income-assessed awards only

If, after inputting parental or spouse/civil partner/partner's income to estimate your net basic award, the final amount returned is £0.00 with a higher figure showing as a "travel disregard", this amount will be deducted from any practice placement expenses claims you may make in the 2011/12 academic year. A more detailed explanation of how this works is included in our booklet Financial Help for Healthcare Students: Booklet 1, which is available at the following link : http://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/Students/3255.aspx
