Why your e-signature does not need to look like your pen signature

  • The signature required is a ‘mouse’ or ‘stylus’ signature - it does not need to match your usual ‘wet’ or ‘pen’ signature.
  • The key issue is that the mark you make can be linked to you as an authorised person to sign pension forms
  • Since the only way to create a LocumDeck account, and therefore e-sign a locum Form A, is to sign up with an authentic verified NHS email address and a secure, personalised password, this is sufficient evidence to verify that  your e-signature represents you.
  • If for cosmetic reasons you’d prefer your e-signature to match your usual wet/pen signature, we recommend signing in via your smartphone or tablet and using your finger or a stylus.
