Medical locum agencies supplying staff to the NHS are required to provide a ‘Fit to Work Certificate’ (FTW) as outlined by the Department of Health for all candidates.
In order to obtain this certificate, please complete the Occupational Health Medical Questionnaire.
Jennie Reeves Radiographers Agency works with Healthier Business. Their in-house team of Occupational Nurses are qualified to produce the required FTW certificate.
Once your proof of immunity and Health Questionnaire has been approved by Healthier Business, your FTW certificate will be issued. The cost of the certificate is £15* (payable to JRRA). The certificate will be sent to you upon receipt of payment and thereafter your annual updates will be FREE.
For more information on the Fit to Work certificate and the immunisation requirements please view the Healthier Business Health Information document.
If you are pregnant please let us know so we can issue you with the relevant documentation to complete.
You will need to provide the following documentation regarding immunisations:
Results should be on letter headed paper or should be stamped, signed and dated by the person/GP/laboratory issuing the reports. Screen shots supplied by GP Surgeries are not acceptable. A declaration by your GP, stating that you are ‘Fit To Work’ will not be adequate, as the assessment must be conducted by a qualified Occupational Health Nurse.
Most doctor surgeries and clinics can perform the necessary immunisations and blood tests. However, if they aren’t able to perform the necessary vaccinations, we can recommend companies who will be able to assist you.
HIV and Hepatitis C
In line with Department of Health guidelines, JRRA is obliged to offer the opportunity for candidates to have HIV and Hepatitis C screened by our occupational health nurse and included on their Fit to Work Certificate. This includes candidates who do not perform exposure prone procedures. It is NOT mandatory to undergo screening for HIV and Hepatitis C but candidates will need to submit these serology reports if they require this service.
We can arrange for free practical training on your behalf through Osmosis, based near Waterloo Station, London. Manual Handling, Basic Life Support and Fire training. The cost of the certificate is £100 (payable to JRRA). Once payment has been made and attendance confirmed your certificate will be sent to you.

These courses run from 9.00am to 5pm and cover practical components including Manual Handling, Basic Life Support and Intermediate Life Support. The cost of the certificate is £100 (payable to JRRA) for both weekday and weekend courses. You can also attend optional paediatric and new born basic and intermediate life support sessions included for free in this training. Please let the compliance team know if you would like to include this in your training. Once we have received payment and confirmation of your attendance, your certificate will be sent to you.
