Curriculum Vitae

Your CV. must show a minimum of 5 years experience or all if less than 5 years. If there are any gaps in your CV such as study leave or extended holidays then you should include details of what you did during that time. Hospitals assume your CV. is complete unless you inform them otherwise.


Consultants will often retain references on file for you once requested and it requires minimum work for their secretary to copy it to us. We will request new references every 6-12 months to ensure we hold a copy from your most recent substantive post on file. It is essential that you provide us with the correct contact details to obtain a reference. Hospitals now require three written references before allowing a doctor cover a locum post.

Police Clearance

When working in many healthcare organisations you will be required to have a valid police clearance. Our recruitment team will assist you in this and process the application form. However we must emphasise that this is a necessity.

Doctor wishing to work in Northern Ireland must complete an Access NI Application Form. All police clearance applications can be processed and completed in the member’s area of our website.

After Registration

Once registered your details will be entered onto our system. We will continually search for jobs that match your requirements and contact you regularly, keeping you updated on your prospects. It is always worth seeing what we have to offer before accepting work from any other source. We give priority to those doctors who are easily contactable and keep in touch. Using the Locumlink smartphone app is the fastest way for view and apply for jobs.


Many of our clients use our electronic timesheets. Which means you can submit your timesheet online in the members area or by using our smartphone app.

If the client required a paper timesheet you will be emailed one when you are confirmed into a job or you can download one from the home page of our website. Payment will not be processed without a completed timesheet. Paper timesheets can be faxed to 01 493 6102 or email to

Cancellation Of Locum Posts By Clients

Clients hold the right to cancel appointments, vary the rota or terminate positions when you have already begun work, and without notice and without compensating Locumlink for your loss of earnings. While this rarely happens we always offer the doctor preference on future jobs to attempt to recover your loss.

Cancellation Of Locums By Doctors

Cancelling a confirmed job without good reason may result in future bookings being withdrawn. This causes tremendous frustration to clients and jeopardises our relationship and reputation. You should never accept a job if you do not have every intention of working it. If unexpected circumstances arise you should ensure that Locumlink is informed at the earliest possible opportunity by telephone. It may be appropriate for you to also inform the hospital but you must always notify us in the first instance.

Occupational Health and Locum Work

The H.S.E wish to protect doctors and patients from acquiring or spreading infection. All locum doctors must provided information regarding their Hepatitis B status and other immunisations. All hospitals require a copy of a certified pathology report, which includes details of titre level together with your full name and date of birth.

Acceptable levels vary from hospital to hospital but documentation containing your date of birth and showing a Hepatitis B antibody titre level of over 100 miu/ml from a test carried out will almost always be accepted.

Getting an Occupational Health Certificate

If you have recently had an Occupational Health medical, your Hepatitis B status may have been evaluated and the result sent to your GP. Your GP should be able to give you a letter confirming your status and you should request that the titre level and your date of birth is indicated and not just the word "immune".

If you have been recently or currently employed by the H.S.E then you should be able to obtain a copy from the Occupational Health Department. Medical Administration should be able to assist you.

We hope this information was useful and look forward to working with you in the future.
