Pre-employment checking seeks to verify that an individual meets the preconditions of the role they are applying for.
There are six NHS Employment Check Standards that outline the type and level of checks employers must carry out before recruiting staff into NHS positions. Download guidance, resources and further information about each check in the pages below.
Please note that NHS Employers does not hold any information about individuals who are working or have worked in the NHS. All reference requests should be sent to the HR or personnel department at the relevant NHS organisation directly.
Reference requests sent to email@example.com will be deleted upon receipt.
