Health Service Locums induction programme (FOI)

Health Service Locums induction programme (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 06 February 2024.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Please advise if there is an induction programme for the locums in Health and Community Services (HCS), and an assessment of their competence on first appointment in Jersey. 

If there is, please supply a copy of the induction Terms and Conditions together with the Terms and Conditions of the competence assessment.


The induction process for temporary staff joining Health and Community Services (HCS) may be completed with the Locum’s appointed supervisor, or other nominated inducting staff member. The HCS induction checklist for temporary staff is attached together with a copy of the Induction Checklist Process. Personal information, including staff names and contact details have been redacted in line with Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.

Holt, who manage Locum medical staff provision for HCS, undertake the necessary pre-employment checks which include checking candidates are compliant with the competency requirements of their role. The checks are then sent through to the Locum Coordinator (Medical Staffing) who oversees the process. 

​The Locum Coordinator is responsible for ensuring that locums who are booked, are done in compliance with the policy for the appointment of locums. Locums cannot be confirmed in a booking until all pre-employment checks are in place. If there is an urgent need and employment checks are in progress, this can be escalated to either the Head of Medical Staffing, the relevant General Manager or the appropriate consultant who can undertake a risk assessment.
