If you wish to book annual leave, please complete an annual leave application form . If cover is required, you need to arrange this yourself. You will need to give notice of leave - perhaps as much as six weeks. Rules vary from department to department so always check. If you have rostered leave on your rota, you should inform Medical Staffing of the number of days taken.
