Changes to the ESR interface


25 / 3 / 2015 4.11pm

NHS Jobs has announced  a number of planned enhancements to improve the exchange of information between NHS Jobs and the Electronic Staff Record (ESR).

Implementation will be in two stages to allow the initial ESR interface changes to be tested with NHS Jobs.

The first phase will be implemented on the 30 March 2015 and includes two key changes:

1. Additional application form information that will be sent to ESR, this includes:

  • changes to applicant’s contact details
  • up to ten referees
  • Welsh language capability answers
  • rejection reasons
  • date employment history check completed
  • date reference check completed.

2. Additional vacancy information received from ESR, this includes:

  • occupational codes.

The second phase will be implemented on the 28 April 2015 and includes two additional changes:

1. Bi-directional update of pre-employment check information, which includes:

  • references
  • illegal working checklist
  • professional registration
  • disclosure and barring service checks.

2. Inbound processing from ESR to NHS Jobs, this includes:

  • occupational health (inbound only as ESR already has an occupational health bi-directional interface).

A document has been sent to all NHS Jobs system administrators and recruiting officers detailing the implementation of these changes and the areas of the system where information will be transferred or received from ESR.
