We engaged with both members and external stakeholders, such as NHS Workforce Alliance, NHS Professionals, the Crown Commercial Service, and HealthTrust Europe to develop our unique Compliance+ standard for Clinical & Healthcare - now available for members here.
The aim of this standard is to compel Clinical & Healthcare recruitment companies to go beyond statutory safeguarding and to aim for excellence in competency selection and service quality. APSCo has constructed this ground-breaking standard with the various NHS frameworks in mind, to bring some consistency to compliance requirements, whilst putting the safeguarding of vulnerable people first, through adherence to the highest service criteria.
NHS Workforce Alliance takes patient safety very seriously. We ensure that all of our suppliers on our staffing frameworks undertake worker employment checks which adhere to the NHS Employment Check Standards and the government Baseline Personnel Security Standards. Our suppliers have to demonstrate that all of their workers meet these standards, which are rigorously applied - not only by us but by our customers as well.
We welcome APSCo adopting and incorporating these within their compliance and healthcare standards, further supporting our healthcare colleagues in providing the highest quality of care to the patients we serve.
APSCo has partnered with Trusted Partner Broadbean Technology to produce Healthcare sector reports free to APSCo members. These reports are based on an analysis of the number of jobs posted on Broadbean’s database and the number of applications per vacancy over a set period. Find our latest sector research here.
