Why are background checks important in the healthcare sector?

GBG provide all levels of criminal records checks, including overseas criminal checks in conjunction with Right to Work, and identity checks, enabling you to meet the best practice guidelines set out by the Fit and Proper Persons regulations.

Once an individual has been confirmed to be who they say they are and their criminal history checked, it's important to ensure that they are no other reasons that could be identified prior to recruitment that are a cause for concern.

GBG are able to provide adverse financial checks, which are important if carers are responsible for handling service users finances. Driving licence checks ensure your employees are entitled to drive, and if any points are on their licence, and if this fits with your policy. We can also help validate a person's employment and education history. With the ability to specify character references, be sure you employ staff that fit and embody your organisations ethos.

By performing background screening checks on new applicants, not only can you ensure that the individual is exactly who they say they are, and that they’re suitable for working within health and social care, but you’ll also deter unsuitable individual’s from applying to begin with.
