30/04/2019 Qualification Check

The healthcare industry in the UK comprises the National Health Service (NHS), private healthcare and voluntary/non-profit organisations, all enabling medical professionals across the world to work in this sector to make a real difference to people’s lives in the UK.

The largest employer in the UK’s healthcare sector is the NHS, currently employing approximately 1.7 million people – placing it the world’s fifth-largest employer across its 152 NHS Foundation Trusts, opening new doors to career opportunities for both UK and international candidates.

A considerable proportion of this sector workforce is further employed by 5 independent healthcare organisations and 5 key voluntary/non-profit organisations, all of which have a due diligence to undertake compliance checks to ensure that medical staff are sufficiently qualified and hold genuine educational certificates.

Employing doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals who may have undertaken their medical training and qualified internationally, may prove challenging and problematic to employers whilst validating the authenticity of these degrees.
