About our Service:

Thank you for visiting the IndexR website. We operate as a software matching platform provider that helps NHS Trusts and Locum Doctors, Nurses, Allied Health Professionals and Non-Clinical staff (“Resources”) to connect directly with each other to book Locum work.

Our software matching platform forms part of an online and mobile service which allows organisations searching for resources (“Client(s)”) to directly access pools of available skilled and pre-vetted resources (“Locum(s)”).

IndexR is not an employment or recruitment agency. We do not employ Locums but rather supply a vehicle for Clients to match their requirements with available candidates. Moreover, our intelligent software matches candidates automatically without the requirement for Locums to search for jobs. Our Clients and/or third party service providers employ and are responsible for compliance sign-off with all applicable employment and other related laws. IndexR shall not be responsible for any engagement or employment decisions made by our Clients and/or third party service providers.

Our software enables Locums to prepare compliance, qualification and experience information within their individual profile to assist our Clients to make informed, quick resourcing decisions.

We are not involved in the actual engagement between Clients and Locums. Any direct or indirect engagement of a Locum by a Client is subject to and governed by separate terms and conditions which do not affect either a Client’s or a Locums rights in respect of such engagement.

For the purposes of the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Business Regulations 2003 (the “Regulations”), IndexR is not an employment agency or employment business and generally does not introduce or supply work-seekers to hirers or hirers to work-seekers.  It is recommended that, if you are a Locum, you undertake the steps set out in the Regulations to ensure your suitability for the role made available by the Client.

These could include but are not limited to:

  • Checking the identity of the Client and the nature of its business;
  • Checking the commencement date and duration of the position, the position to be filled including type of work, location, hours and risks to health and safety;
  • Ensuring experience, training, qualifications and authorisation which the Client considers necessary or are required by law or otherwise to undertake the position are in place; and
  • Providing any requirements imposed by law or otherwise for you to satisfy before taking up a position.

The Client has the obligation to pay Locums for services provided however, from time to time, IndexR may, acting as the Client’s agent, arrange payment for the services delivered by Locums to the Client.

Registering with IndexR:

To utilise the IndexR Service you must register an account (“User Profile”) through the Platform and in doing so you agree to be bound by these Terms, which shall govern your use of the IndexR Service.

You are only eligible to register a User Profile if all information that you use to register is accurate and current. You will only be activated onto our platform, at such time this information has been validated by IndexR. Each Locum may register one User Profile only. It is your responsibility to keep all your information up to date.

On registering with IndexR to use the Service, you will be issued with a user name and password which must be used to access our Service.  The user name and password are personal to you and are not transferable to any other individual or team. To use the Service, you must populate the user profile information. You warrant and represent that all information provided on registration and contained in the user profile is, and continues to be, accurate and not misleading.
