How does annual and study leave work?

Ideally, leave should be booked before the rota is written. In an annualised rota, you do a set amount of clinical work (DCCs) spread across the year. This clinical work calculation already has all your leave removed. So where no clinical work is rostered, this is your SPA or leave time. When you request annual or study leave in advance, we simply move around your clinical work to ensure your gaps fall in the periods requested.
