NHS audit results give Hays Healthcare platinum status

29 January 2015

Hays Healthcare, the leading recruiting expert, has achieved platinum status in an audit carried out on behalf of NHS London Procurement Partnership.

Platinum is the highest level achievable. Hays’ platinum score of 99.81% follows a compliance audit by firm Neuven on behalf of LPP, to ensure the quality of service delivered by members of LPP’s framework.

Simon Hudson, Director at Hays Healthcare, said:
“We take our compliance policies seriously to deliver the highest standards of recruitment service to organisations. To receive the highest award from LPP is a testament to our best practice, compliance vigilance and recognition of our delivery of expert service to the NHS.”

The annual LPP audit inspects temporary worker files to ensure that workers are recruited in accordance with the terms and conditions of LPP’s contract. The audit looks at the pre-employment checks and qualifications as required by the professional and regulatory bodies, ensuring that agencies on LPP’s framework deliver best practice and meet the needs of the NHS.
