How this check was done

Our judgement

We found no evidence that recruitment and selection procedures for workers were not effective. No gaps in assurance or areas of concern were identified during the assessment of this outcome for this location.

User experience

It was not possible to gain the direct views of people who use the service for this outcome.

Other evidence

The provider declared compliance with this outcome at this location at registration with CQC October 2010.

As part of the assessment of this location the provider submitted a 'provider

compliance assessment' record for this outcome. The hospital set out information, which explained how this outcome was being met, with references to supporting evidence. For example, the hospital set out in detail its recruitment and selection processes along explanations about measures that are in place such as a three month minimum probationary period along with the managing of poor performance issues.

The hospital also voluntarily provided additional supporting evidence to demonstrate compliance with this outcome. For example, providing an anonymised sample of a UK border agency work permit and a practising privileges agreement (which is the method of contract between a consultant surgeon and the provider).

We have no information that suggests there are areas of non compliance with this outcome.
