Healthcare Worker information
Conditions of Employment
Membership of the Company is conditional upon a true statement of the details of your mental and physical health and a Declaration of Fitness to Work as set out in the Application Form. You must be in a state of good health when reporting for duty.
Any illness that may affect professional performance or evidence of back or neck problems must be declared. Health declarations will be updated annually.
Members may be asked to undergo health screening or to obtain a Certificate of Fitness from their G.P or an Occupational Health Department.
New and Expectant Mothers
Members are required to inform the Manager if they become pregnant, have given birth in the last 6 months or are breastfeeding, so that a risk assessment can be performed in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Regulations. Where new or expectant mothers work night shifts, a certificate is required from a registered General Practitioner.
All Members are responsible for ensuring that their immunisations are up to date. Members may be required to provide evidence of immunisation against the following infections:
- Hepatitis B (including Titre levels)
- Varicella (Chickenpox)
- Tuberculosis (TB)
Evidence can be a laboratory result from the NHS Trust laboratory, a letter from a previous Occupational Health Department, or equivalent. Without this evidence there may be some assignments that the Company will not be able to offer you.
Some clients e.g. NHS Trusts may insist on Members being screened for MRSA prior to working assignments for them. Your Manager will inform you if this is necessary and assist in making arrangements with the local Occupational Health Department. If you come into contact with MRSA you must let your Manager know.
