The benefits of ID scanning

04 / 05 / 2017

King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been using identity scanning equipment and software for years to check the high numbers of staff who join the organisation each month. 

In 2016, in line with tighter immigration rules, the trust decided to introduce retrospective checks on its 6,000 staff. 

This case study describes how the scanner works in practice, the process the trust undertook to inform and prepare existing staff for checks, along with the outcomes, which included identifying two members of staff who were found to be working under false documents.
