Terms and Conditions
These are the terms and conditions ("Terms") on which you may use the Services (as defined below). Please read these Terms carefully before you use the Services.
Who we are and how to contact us
The Services are provided by One Wirral.
To contact us, please email us using [EMAIL ADDRESS] or telephone us on [NUMBER] or use the address at the top of this document.
Use of the Services
The Services are only for the use of organisations delivering NHS Contracts and those individuals entitled to apply for roles (including voluntary roles) within such organisations. By signing this agreement, you confirm that you are eligible to apply for roles in NHS organisations.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us in relation to your use of the Services. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance or warranty made or given by or on behalf of ONE WIRRAL which is not set out in these Terms and that you shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in these Terms.
If you do not accept these Terms, please do not use the Services. By using the Services, you confirm that you accept these Terms and that you agree to comply with them.
The Services allow GP Organisations and Primary Care Networks (“Advertisers”) to request that One Wirral post their requirements for temporary, shift cover staffing (“Adverts”) and process any responses to Adverts. Qualified nurses, general practitioners and other individuals entitled to apply for roles with Advertisers may use the Services in order to search and view these Adverts and apply for the specific shifts (“Sessions”) advertised within these Adverts. The Services allow the Applicant to create an individual profile ("Profile") and to upload evidence of their qualifications to this Profile. Such Profile and qualifications may be viewed by the Advertisers who use the Services. The Services may also provide for payment to be made by the Advertisers to the Applicant in relation to shifts completed.
The Applicant acknowledges that Advertisers are solely responsible for their Adverts on the Site. We are not an employer or any employment agency in respect of the Services. We do not introduce or supply work-seekers to hirers (or vice versa) or take steps to assess the suitability of an Applicant in relation to any Session or the validity of any certificates or other evidence of qualifications uploaded to the Site by the Applicant. It is the responsibility of the Applicant to take steps to identify the suitability of any Sessions, and the responsibility of Advertisers to assess the suitability of the Applicants in relation to a Session.
One Wirral will carry out Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks on the Applicant before determining whether the Applicant will be permitted to use the Services. The Applicant will be required to pay an administration fee to cover the cost of such DBS checks.
We may revise these Terms at any time by posting an updated version to the Site.
If you do not comply with these Terms your access and use of the Services may be suspended or terminated at our discretion.
You confirm that you are at least 18 years of age.
The Services may be used by the Applicant only to seek and apply for Sessions. The performance of such Sessions may be subject to other contractual arrangements between the Advertiser and the Applicant. Although payment for Sessions may be facilitated via the Site, we are not a party to such contractual arrangements and shall have no liability in respect of the performance or non-performance by the parties of such contractual arrangements, in respect of the acts or omissions of the Advertiser or the Applicant, or in respect of any costs or expenses incurred by the Advertiser or the Applicant in relation to the formation or performance of such contractual arrangements.
The Applicant shall comply with all legal requirements including CQC requirements in relation to Sessions. The Applicant acknowledges that we have no control over such Sessions and shall not be liable for any failure by Applicants or Advertisers to comply with applicable CQC requirements or any other legal requirements.
In relation to the Services, the Applicant shall not:
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account, username and password. You may not share your password or other account access information with any other party, whether temporarily or otherwise, and you shall be responsible for all uses of your registrations and passwords, whether or not such use was authorised by you. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorised use of your account, Profile, or passwords.
We have the right to disable any username or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our reasonable opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms.
You understand and acknowledge that if you cancel your account or your account is terminated, or after a period of inactivity, all your account information may be deleted from the system. Information may continue to be available for a period of time because of delays in effecting such deletion following the termination or cancellation of an account.

Invoicing for Sessions

Adverts for One Wirral roles
