Safe Healthcare Recruitment.


Healthcare recruitment you can trust

As a leading healthcare recruitment specialist in the UK, we place safe recruitment at the heart of everything we do.

We believe, this is not just best practice, but our duty. A duty we take seriously as an on-framework agency and DBS umbrella organisation.

Therefore, we operate one of the most rigorous compliance processes within the healthcare recruitment sector – so that you know that the professionals we place are of the highest calibre.

Face-to-face vetting

Every candidate goes through a robust and thorough compliance checking process before they start their placement. This includes a face-to-face meeting, where original documents are seen and verified. Here, they are also interviewed to make sure they are suitable for the role.

As a DBS registered body, Sanctuary physically checks and processes criminal record and safeguarding documentation to ensure each candidate is safe to work.

We also have screening processes in place to check professional registration and employment history.

Our compliance checks include:

  • Proof of identity (provided in person)

  • Full employment history

  • Verification of professional registration

  • Checking of professional referee details for the last 5 years

  • Verification of training and qualifications

  • Disclosure and Barring Service and relevant overseas police checks

  • Proof of eligibility to work in the UK

  • Check on up—to-date statutory and role specific training

  • Occupational health screening (for relevant services)

This approach ensures our healthcare recruitment services are always compliant and that we adhere to the safe recruitment guidelines for those working with vulnerable people, as set out through local and national government, as well as the Crown Commercial Services, The Collaborative Procurement Partnership and HealthTrust Europe frameworks.
