  • We do not guarantee that our site will be secure or free from bugs or viruses.
  • You are responsible for configuring your information technology, computer programmes and platform in order to access this site. You should use your own virus protection software.

Passwords and Security

  • Passwords should be kept in a secure environment and not shared. Any suspected breaches of security should be reported immediately.


Job description approvals

  • We quality assure many consultant and SAS posts before they are advertised. Some job descriptions may display a stamp of ‘RCP approved’. The stamp is applied by the RCP after a recruiter declares that the content of the job description is unchanged following RCP approval and will not be altered without the knowledge of the RCP after obtaining the stamp.


  • The RCP holds no liability if a job description is altered after the ‘RCP approved’ stamp is applied but upon detection we can insist that the recruiter removes the stamp and informs any potential candidates of the correct approval status.
  • We cannot guarantee that advertised posts on Medicine Jobs will have been reviewed by the RCP. In addition, it should not be assumed that a job is not approved if it does not display the ‘RCP approved’ stamp as not all approved job descriptions will display a stamp (this is at the recruiter’s discretion). If you wish to know if a job description for a post is ‘RCP approved’ you can check with the recruiter directly or contact the AACs Unit at the RCP.


  • Vacancies are advertised on Medicine Jobs by recruiting employers and advertising agencies. We are not responsible for the content of adverts or the conduct of the recruiting employers using Medicine Jobs.

Your data

  • Registration on Medicine Jobs is for jobseeker functionality and services only and has no bearing on contact or login data held by the RCP for any other purpose. Contact data collected on this website is used only for Medicine Jobs specific communications. We do not share contact details with any third party. The RCP may also contact you regarding other RCP services and resources and events that may be of interest. Medicine Jobs will only contact you should you consent at the point of registration or editing your profile.


  • You must provide a valid email address when you register with Medicine Jobs and for each application you submit. If you supply an incorrect email address then you will not receive messages sent by Medicine Jobs in connection with your account, nor will you receive messages sent in relation to an application by the recruiter. We do not guarantee reliability of email communications and you should check the status of any application on Medicine Jobs or directly with the recruiter.
  • Applications and any accompanying attachments are assessed by the recruiting employer and all decisions relating to applications are taken by the recruiting employer and not by us. Any requests for information relating to your application should be addressed to the recruiting employer directly.
  • We will not be responsible, or liable to any third party, for the content or accuracy of any materials submitted by you.

Safety standards

  • The products which are supplied via our website have been designed to comply with the statutory legal requirements and relevant safety standards of the United Kingdom. We can therefore make no representation or warranty that any product provided via or referred to in this site is compliant with health, safety or other legal requirements which apply outside the United Kingdom or are otherwise suitable for use outside of the United Kingdom. You may not access our site from countries where their contents are illegal or unlawful. If you do access this site from locations outside the United Kingdom, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.



  • We do not warrant that the functions contained in this site will be uninterrupted or error free, that defects will be corrected, or that this site or the servers that make them available are free of viruses or bugs or represent full functionality, accuracy or reliability of the materials. We will not be liable for any loss, disruption or damage to your data or your computer system or any other damages (including amongst other losses, loss of profit or loss of use) arising out of your use or delay or inability to use this site, their content or any link to another website arising in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise except in the case of death or personal injury caused by our negligence.
