Fit to Work Certificate

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.

Download Fit to Work Documents & Forms here: Downloads.

Vaccinations

You will need to provide the following documentation regarding immunisations:

  • Varicella – Immunisation report/Antibody results/Self Declaration on the Health Declaration Questionnaire.
  • Measles, Rubella – evidence of two MMR vaccinations or a lab report stating immunity/ showing antibody level
  • Tuberculosis – Proof of BCG immunisation or positive Mantoux test (grade 2).
  • Hepatitis B – Antibodies report.

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.

Mandatory Training Certificates

We can arrange practical training on your behalf through Osmosis, based near Waterloo Station, London. Manual Handling, Basic Life Support and Fire training. Alternatively you may book independently. Once payment has been made and attendance confirmed your certificate will be sent to you.

We can also arrange practical training on your behalf through The Health and Safety Group. They offer a Mandatory + Statutory Training (‘Skills for Health’ CSTF) Practical Day at various cities across the UK. These courses run from 9am to 5pm and cover practical components including Manual Handling, Basic Life Support and Intermediate Life Support. 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.

Please note the ‘All in One Day’ Training course run by the Health and Safety Group is not currently aligned to the Skills For Health UK Core Skills Training Framework so we can no longer accept those certificates. For more information regarding your training options, please contact compliance@jenniereeves.co.uk

Additional Information

Charges

* All compliance charges are payments charged by third parties not by JRRA.

Insurance

As an employment agency we are not required to provide any insurance cover for candidates. Therefore we recommend that all candidates hold their own professional indemnity insurance. Recent Government legislation require all radiographers to hold professional indemnity as part of their HCPC registration.

If you have insurance through a non UK trade body please check that you are covered for work in the UK and for cases heard in UK courts.

How to certify a document

To certify documents, ask a professional person or someone well-respected in your community (‘of good standing’) like a:

  • qualified radiographer
  • doctor
  • bank or building society official
  • police officer
  • solicitor
  • teacher or lecturer

The person you ask shouldn’t be:

  • related to you
  • living at the same address
  • in a relationship with you

Take the photocopied document and the original and ask the person to certify the copy by:

  • writing ‘Certified to be a true copy of the original seen by me’ on the document
  • signing and dating it
  • printing their name under the signature
  • adding their occupation, address and telephone number

Radiation Monitoring

Jennie Reeves Radiographers Agency is the ONLY recruitment agency in the UK to provide Instadose radiation monitoring for all candidates.

The Instadose dosimeter is a small dosimeter based on direct ion storage technology. It is the only accredited device that enables candidates to view their radiation dose anywhere, anytime using any internet enabled computer.

This breakthrough technology provides candidates with a precise measurement of their radiation dose and includes accurate long-term exposure tracking. A built-in memory chip stores each candidate’s identity via an embedded unique serial code.

JRRA are proud to be leading the way with this new technology.

Each device requires a deposit of £65. This is refunded once the device is returned. Replacement cost for any lost or damaged device is also £65.
