Pre-employment screening


Staff must receive a pre-appointment health check, which adheres to equal opportunities legislation and good occupational health practice.

All checks take into account the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) and reasonable adjustments must be made to ensure that employees can work in their work place regardless of any physical impairment or learning disabilities.

Pre-employment checking seeks to verify that an individual meets the pre-conditions of the role they are applying for.

We carry out the six NHS Employment Check Standards that outline the type and level of checks employers must carry out before recruiting staff into NHS positions.
