How we can help

Keeping agency registration simple

We only provide fully compliant Doctors, Nurses, and Allied Health Professionals to our NHS partners.

It can be quite complicated and time consuming for you to meet the required standards set by the Government.

To help with this, our dedicated Compliance Team is on hand to support and guide you, every step of the way

What we need to get you compliant

We need identity documents, right to work employment history & references, work health assessments, professional registration and qualification documents and any criminal records.

Don’t worry though, we’re here to help you at every stage. Your Recruitment Consultant will guide you through the process, advising what’s due and by when.

You can also access this information through your ID Medical online profile, which allows you to see your exact status.

Our road team

To help you become compliant with us even faster, we have a ‘Road Team’, a specialist team of friendly professionals who travel the UK meeting Doctors, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals in convenient and safe locations.

They’ll take you through the compliance process, providing advice and services such as sighting BCG scars, taking bloods test and scanning documents.

It’s a one-stop-shop to fast track your compliance.

Getting paid your way

Helpful hints to weigh up your options

ID Medical Group offers several payment options so you can be paid in a way that suits your particular needs.

We run a daily payroll service, which means you can be paid within as little as two-working days (excluding Direct Engagement models).

What do you need to do?

When you register with us, simply choose the payment method that works best for you and provide us with a few extra details, then we’ll handle the rest.

PAYE and Direct Engagment Payments

PAYE means that you’ll be engaged and paid directly by ID Medical Group. Simply send us your timesheets and we’ll do everything else. Working for us on PAYE comes with the added bonus that timesheets submitted before 2:30pm will be paid within two-working days!

Different ways to get paid

The pros and cons

If you’re interested in a different way of getting paid, we also work with umbrella companies and where permitted, with workers providing their services via their own limited companies.

As a result of recent changes to IR35 legislation, there are now significant curbs on being paid via a limited company. Please keep reading for further information.

It’s important to be aware that some NHS trusts pay Doctors and AHPs via a Direct Engagement model. In these cases, you may need to submit a trust-specific timesheet and you’ll be paid directly via the trust rather than by ID Medical Group. Your Recruitment Consultant will be able to give you additional information about which trusts work through Direct Engagement.

IR35 Legislation

As of 6th April 2021, new IR35 legislation means that the vast majority of temporary staff working via their own limited companies will have their income taxed at source.

In this situation, there is considerable financial risk for both agencies and workers that the incorrect tax treatment of income could result in a large, unexpected tax bill. At ID Medical Group, your welfare is important to us and as such, we strongly encourage you to be fully aware of the implications of IR35 and other tax regulations. For further information, our IR35 Legislation web page will provide you with everything you need to know!

Please note, in order to comply with HMRC rules including IR35, not all payment methods will be available for all roles.


Refer and earn

With ID Medical you can earn up to £500 for referring a colleague.

And there’s no limit to how many referrals you can provide… so there’s no limit to how much you can earn!

We are always looking for more dedicated healthcare professionals like you to fill the 100,000+ vacancies we have every month.

So, if you have friends or family who are Healthcare Professionals, or work with colleagues who are interested in locum work, then why not introduce them to the UK’s leading healthcare recruitment agency – ID Medical – and earn yourself some extra cash while you’re at it!

Be sure to ask the person you are referring to enter your name when they register.
