Compliance + Best Practice Standard

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 - 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.
