Identity checks and Right to Work checks in the NHS

We're a leading digital identity service provider supporting NHS Trusts and medical recruitment agencies

Safe, secure and consistent digital identity checks

ID scanning services could help your NHS Trust to easily validate identity documents and make Right to Work checks as part of NHS Employment Check Standards.

As a first line of defence, our ID verification services provide more than 100 NHS Trusts with useful tools for identifying fraudulent documents which are efficient and easy to use.

We also support over 250 medical recruitment agencies who supply staff to the NHS as part of the NHS Procurement framework.

Digital Right to Work checks support compliance

“Following guidance from NHS frameworks and the Home Office, it was imperative to introduce Identity Document Validation Technology (IDVT) to support our compliance processes.

Adding digital checks to our document verification will support our processes during audit and provide an extra layer of clarity on individual documentation. After speaking to various providers, we felt TrustID would be able to provide the service we required with a simple, quick and effective process.”
