NHS staff undergo rigorous pre-employment checks before they begin work to ensure they can provide safe care for patients.
To support the COVID-19 response, an interim COVID-19 Digital Staff Passport has been developed to enable safe and rapid staff movements between NHS organisations and furthers the Chief People Officer’s commitment to ‘NHS Passports’ to help staff work flexibly and cut admin costs.
The new COVID-19 Digital Staff Passport provides a legal framework based upon the Enabling Staff Movement Toolkit for staff and bank workers to be deployed into other NHS organisations and speeds up the sharing of information, allowing staff to move promptly and with ease. The information is transferred securely by the staff member through their own smartphone, putting them in control.
