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, we have streamlined the process and given you total transparency and complete control for you to complete everything online through an online profile, at a time convenient to you.

What we need to get you compliant

We need identity documents, right to work, employment history and 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.

  • Dr Semiu A Babayode

    Locum Consultant Psychiatrist, LCFT

    I know I have only been working for ID-Medical and known you for only two and half years but I want to use this opportunity to thank you for your steadfast and unprecedented commitment to my course. It’s a fact many would not admit to that the agency/contractor relationship is full of suspicion but it’s consoling for me personally to find someone I can trust like you. You have inspired me; helped me identify and tapped into my strengths which have helped progress my career within the short period of time I have known you. You have already formed part of my seamless memories which tell my story today, will do tomorrow and in years to come. Heart does not forget; I will forever be grateful to you for making a difference in my humble life as a professional.

  • Dr Arshad

    It has been pleasure to work continually with ID medical for last three years and I would like to appreciate your hard work, dedication, very friendly and personal service. I would like to mention that I never worked with any other agency since I started working with ID medical as you were always there to have a very personal and efficient way of dealing with the job requirements. I would like to mention that you have been at best possible standards to find the job which suited my personal circumstances and specialty requirements and which have helped me a lot during these years. I wish you good luck for your future career and hope that you will make a good progress in your career.

  • Synclare d’souza

    I have worked with Amie in ID medical as a locum doctor for more than 2 years. Amie is lovely and very supportive. I have never been disappointed working with ID medical. She has particularly been very helpful with any queries that I have. I would highly recommend working with Amie.

  • Loan-Mihai Draghita

    I had the opportunity to work with ID Medical this year. Even with the reduction of services in my specialty they were able to find an assignment according to my preference and in the area I wanted. Everything went smoothly every step of the way. There were no issues whatsoever. I was paid on time and I felt that ID Medical is looking after my best interest. I had a very fast reply to any query. Bret, my agency Consultant was fantastic and I was always confident that things get done. Edita was very supportive and helpful with my appraisal. I have nothing but praise for this agency and if you’re thinking of doing locum work I can’t recommend them enough.

  • Untitled Physician

    I am extremely impressed with ID Medical and have found them to be a reliable, professional and supportive locum agency. My recruitment consultant Lewis has been exceptional and constantly goes above and beyond what is required. He truly cares about the people he is helping and is always very polite and professional (something I felt lacked from other agencies). His dedication to his job and positive, friendly attitude is an asset to the company and I could not speak more highly of him. My file manager Christina has also been absolutely fantastic and deserves praise. Would highly recommend to any colleagues looking for locum work.

  • Robin Wang

    Many thanks to Dean for his clear communication and rapid responses. He has pushed hard to find me my ideal SHO role in my selected hospital. Much appreciated.

  • Marc Donnai

    I worked for 2 years as a consultant surgeon with Amie Consterdine Adams as my ID-Medical consultant. The locum work she organised was a great experience and she was tirelessly helpful, courteous and caring. Unfortunately the NHS trust insisted on ‘direct engagement’, but even then she tried to mitigate most of unpleasantness of that part of the experience. I will definitely work with ID-medical again when the occasion presents

  • Untitled Physician

    Locum Doctor, University Hospital of North Tees, UK

    For everyone who might want to work in UK, but don’t have an idea how to start, I would like to suggest that the simplest and best idea is to start with ID-Medical. It’s important, especially for the beginning, to have someone who will sort out your basic problems like accommodation, registration in offices, transport; the list is endless. They definitely fulfilled my expectation. They have helped me with paper work, applications and CV. They were always calling me. What is even more important I could call them with any problem that I had and they were always available. I didn’t have any work experience, I was fresh graduated doctor from Poland and I was offered a job very quickly. But the decision to work in UK demanded as well a lot of work and commitment from myself. I wouldn’t advise anybody to go to UK until you feel comfortable that this is a great investment for you. From my own experience I have to admit that ID-Medical is a great opportunity to start your career in UK with.

  • Untitled Physician

    SHO Paediatrics, Erne Hospital

    ID Medical and particularly Mr Coffill gave me a wonderful opportunity to work in one of the most developed health system in the world. Their struggle to find me the most suitable position and to provide me with the most pleasant work environment really deserves to be acknowledged.

  • Untitled Physician

    SHO Neurology. Chelsea & Westminster Hospital

    Service provided by ID Medical without doubt differs from those provided by other locum companies I have encountered. ID Medical is more oriented on its partners. Also it is worth to note that in communication ID Medical has showed supremacy if compared to other companies. Furthermore I would like to stress that ID Medical for me as foreigner in UK has provided excellent service and assistance, even in simple problems that are not directly related to their job.
