Electronic document validation for NHS Trusts

Verifying your employees' right to work in the UK helps you to comply with NHS Employment Check Standards

Why electronic identity document scanning?

As an NHS Trust, you need to scan identity documents to check your employees’ right to work in the UK, to comply with NHS Employment Standards, or to check whether overseas patients should be charged for treatment, in line with the Charging Regulations. These checks are critical to protect patients, staff and the public.
