Point taken. Apologies if I came across as argumentative, I was just trying to generate a discussion on such a hazy subject - it's something we practice in medicine! I do appreciate all the advice kindly offered.

Thanks again for all the input.
So I accept that there is a lack of control but, as cfield has said, can it not be argued that an absence of MOO and substitution clause (bearing in mind the caveats mentioned) point towards being outside of ir35?
Kate, I understand what you say about the company footing the bill for annual leave/sickness etc, but if the client doesn't provide these in the contract like they do for their regular employees, does this not still suggest outside ir35?
Also, I understand that ir35 is considered on a contract by contract basis, but as cfield has also said, would working with multiple clients at the same time also not work in favour of operating as a self-employed business and therefore outside of ir35? This point seems to conflict with what Kate has said.
Sorry to press with all the questions. I really appreciate you taking the time to reply. I have some accountants I have spoken with say I would be outside, some say I would be inside. I don't know what to think anymore!

Thanks for the quick reply.
I didn't think it was as clear cut as that...does the fact that I'm working in different hospitals on an ad hoc basis without any regular employee "perks" not count against that? I thought other factors were taken into consideration?
