Protecting your healthcare recruitment business

If you are making temporary or permanent healthcare appointments, you need to demonstrate compliance with UK legislation that stipulates that all candidates must be fully entitled to work in the UK.
As the NHS tightens guidance on electronic identity document scanning for anyone providing staff into Trusts, locum and nursing agencies working within NHS Procurement frameworks or awaiting confirmation of their acceptance, need a quick and easy way to validate identity documents with confidence and demonstrate compliance.
Agencies are often responding to last-minute requests and need to be able to continue to offer fast, reliable, professional and most importantly trusted service.

Why electronic scanning?


In Q4 2016, 40% of failed documents referred to our expert helpdesk team came from businesses working in medical recruitment. This was the highest referral rate of any single sector.

With electronic scanning, you can efficiently and easily make robust identity checks to support compliance with Right to Work legislation and confirm the identity of candidates.


Following recent tightening of guidance within the NHS Procurement Framework, recruitment agencies who are working within the NHS are required to prove that they have appropriate electronic checking solutions in place in order to be able to place medical staff.

Desktop or remote electronic checking of ID documents is becoming best practice across an increasing number of agencies, protecting them and their clients, driving on-boarding efficiencies and providing further differentiation in quality of service.
