Updated locums guidance published

NHS Employers has published an updated version of our guidance on the appointment and employment of NHS locum doctors.

Originally published in June 2012, the guidance provides guidelines and sets standards for the appointment and assessment of NHS locum doctors in order to safeguard the quality of patient care.

It sets out updated requirements around the NHS employment checks standards, tax assurance of off-payroll workers, language competency and revalidation.
