To ensure the very best patient care it is essential that all our agency workers comply with legislation laid down in the Care Standards Act 2000 and PASA – the NHS’ governing body. In practice this means that we need copies of documents that give key information about you.
When you come for an interview at your local branch, we’ll give you a personal compliance envelope. On it you will see a list of the documents you need to provide before you can be booked in to your first placement. Just place the documents on that list in the envelope (using the checklist provided to tick off the items as you submit them to your collection envelope). Once complete, seal the envelope and return it to the branch, where your documents will be safely transferred (in confidence) to your personal file.
