Industry Expertise:


Partner with First Advantage today for quality healthcare checks and screening services.

Why are background checks important in the healthcare sector?

First Advantage provide all levels of criminal record checks, including overseas criminal record checks in conjunction with right to work and identity checks. This enables you to meet the best practice guidelines set out by the fit and proper persons regulations.

Once an individual has been confirmed as who they say they are and their criminal history has been checked, it’s important to ensure there are no other reasons that could be identified prior to recruitment that are a cause for concern.

First Advantage provides adverse financial checks, which are important if carers are responsible for handling service user finances. Driving licence checks ensure whether your employees are entitled to drive, if there are any points are on their licence, and if this fits with your policy. We can also help validate a person’s employment and education history. With the ability to specify character references, be sure to employ staff that fit and embody your organisation’s ethos.

Quality Patient Care Begins with Quality Healthcare Candidates

The healthcare industry is evolving at a rapid pace – and hiring at lightning speed. Technological advancements coupled with elevated demand for more personalized care are contributing to significant industry growth, enabling practitioners to deliver quality care to millions of people every day.

By performing background screening checks on new applicants, not only can you ensure that the individual is exactly who they say they are, and that they’re suitable for working within health and social care, but you’ll also deter unsuitable individuals from applying to begin with.

As healthcare workforces become more globally distributed and internationally educated, individuals who work in the industry continue to rise. It’s important to partner with a background screening provider whose solutions are globally-focused—from the vast amount of available in-country searches to our localized, feet-on-the-street processes, First Advantage consists of an experienced global management team.
