Legal Right To Work in the UK

This applied equally to staff employed on our own books and to staff sub-contracted via other companies.

All checks are carried out for all NHS jobs in the UK. All AHP JOBS, Medical Jobs, ultrasound, sonographer jobs, radiography and physiotherapy. All applicants for the NHS must undergo full compliance checks prior to any locum placement, please contact us for more details
