PVG: I am a locum pharmacist and I regularly work for 3 different companies. The owners of one pharmacy have asked me to become a member of the PVG Scheme. If I join would my certificate cover me for all 3 companies?

Your PVG Certificate would only be valid for the pharmacy that have requested you to become a member, and they would be registered as an ‘interested party’ with Disclosure Scotland.  If the other two pharmacies ask you to join you will need to update your certificate by applying for a scheme record update for each employer and they too would be listed as an ‘interested party’.  For further information please see the Advice Note for Locums on our website.
