Enabling NHS staff movement to support the NHS response to coronavirus (COVID-19)
NHS staff undergo rigorous pre-employment checks before they begin work to ensure they are able to provide safe care for patients.
To support the COVID-19 response, staff movement between NHS organisations need to be swift and efficient, with evidence available that checks have been completed before staff move.
The new COVID-19 Digital Staff Passport provides a solid legal framework for staff and bank workers to be deployed into other NHS organisations and streamlines 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.
