Compliance in the UK healthcare system has never been more important and is vital that all training, qualifications and inoculations are up to date and completed before you start work with 24hr healthcare.

24hr healthcare is dedicated to high standards and is a Crown Commercial Service approved agency with a place on the medical staffing framework and London Procurement Programme (LPP), this also incorporates the East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub and the North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative.

The compliance system ensures that medical and care staff can only be selected for work once they have each completed a detailed registration process. All relevant, employment, training, DBS checks and references are confirmed by the agency, and the staff work record is checked again for each assignment. Without this validation the candidate is unable to work for us.

We adhere to stringent compliance rules. Each of our nurses goes through rigorous compliance screening prior to placement. This process includes a face to face interview during which all relevant documentation is verified by a qualified nurse and we have a professional compliance team who work with 24hr healthcare candidates and clients on a daily basis.

For nurses who are unable to meet with us in our 24hr healthcare branches we have a road based compliance team and our roamers are able to meet you near to your work or home at flexible times.  We also have a digital upload facility for documentation to be sent and handled securely.

Our compliance team will help you to ensure your documentation is not only in order but also up to date.

Occupational Health Screening

We recognize that this information is personal and highly confidential to you as an individual; we have for this reason contracted with Healthier Business who carry out all occupational health checks and provide advice on our behalf. They will undertake all the necessary checks and verifications and will make recommendations where necessary. Healthier Business will issue us with a “Fitness for work “certificate on your behalf once they are satisfied you meet the requirements laid down by the Department of Health.
