Health and immunisations

All candidates who work in medical roles or in an NHS setting are required to undergo an occupational health check before we place them – this is renewed every 12 months.

Our occupational health checks are carried out by a specialist provider, who advises us on all matters relating to the effects of health on work, and work on health.

As part of this process, we will ask all relevant staff to provide evidence that they have received and are up-to-date with the following immunisations:

  • Hepatitis B
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Tuberculosis
  • Varicella (self declared)

Where workers are required to perform exposure prone procedures, the following are also checked:

  • Hepatitis B Surface Antigen
  • Hepatitis C
  • HIV

NHS staff have to provide evidence that they have completed their mandatory training in the past 12 months – this includes face-to-face training in manual handling and basic or advanced life support.

Depending on your job role in an NHS setting, the requirements can vary. Your consultant will advise you accordingly.
