We are pleased to announce that NHS Improvement are pausing the instruction ‘that trusts should ensure staff employed through an agency are not substantively employed elsewhere in the NHS.’ These rules were due to come into force on 1 April, but after a significant amount of negative feedback, the decision has been made to not go ahead with this change for now.

You can read the full statement from NHS Improvement here.

This means that you are free to continue to work when and where you want.

We will keep you informed of any updates to this rule.
