How will the lead employer arrangements be quality assured?

Medical staffing colleagues across placement Boards and employing Boards will work collaboratively to ensure that the lead employer model delivers an improved employment experience for trainees and reduced duplication of administration. Placement Board medical staffing colleagues will discharge employment responsibilities on behalf of the lead employers as detailed in Once for Scotland Policies and the Employment Responsibilities Agreement.

The National HR Medical & Dental Workforce Group will continue to meet bimonthly to discuss operational aspects of the employment of doctors and dentists in training, including the development and application of Once for Scotland policies, with a remit of ensuring consistency and transparency across Boards.
