Terms of Business


In the event that HEE is classified as an Employment Agency for the purposes of the Employment Agencies Act 1973 ("the Act") and associated regulations, the following terms and conditions will apply to the provision of services by HEE in connection with the recruitment of junior doctors and dentists to training programmes.

  1. The services provided include a work-finding service for which the Act prohibits HEE from charging a fee.
  2. The services provided by HEE will be provided without any charge to either junior doctors/dentists or the NHS employers that engage them.
  3. If it is determined that the Act applies to HEE, HEE will operate as an employment agency in providing the services.
  4. HEE is authorised to act for NHS employers that are offering training posts as part of the junior doctor/dentist training programme and is not authorised to enter into contracts with junior doctors/dentists on behalf of those employers.
By proceeding with the application process and/or accepting information from HEE about applicants for places on the training programmes applicants are deemed to accept these terms and conditions.


Code of Practice


Doctors in training have the same needs as other NHS employees. They want to know as much detail as possible about the programmes and posts they are applying for, where they will be working and their conditions of employment. This Code of Practice seeks to help recruiting organisations and employers get the flow of information right to help meet those needs as far as it is reasonably practicable to do so.

This Code of Practice aims to support a process of continuing improvement to ensure that any concerns in relation to information are addressed. It lays out the agreed set of information that recruiting organisations and employers should provide to doctors in training at each stage of the recruitment process.
