Police / Garda Vetting
It is a requirement of the Health Service Executive (HSE) and National Health Service (NHS) that all temporary healthcare professionals placed through recruitment agencies complete a Police/Garda vetting process.
Healthcare Professionals working in private hospitals or GP practice are not required to complete the Garda vetting. However this is something that might change in the near future and we highly recommend you complete the vetting process.
This vetting procedure is in the interest of public safety and only information regarding your ability to perform your duty as a healthcare professional will be scrutinised. Traffic offences and other minor convictions will not in any way affect your potential to receive job offers.
If you have not already completed the vetting process we urge you to do so as it can take up to six weeks to obtain a certificate.
How it works:
You must complete the on-line application form
Locumlink will post you the original document for signature
You must return the signed document in the self addressed envelope provided
Locumlink will batch your signed document and submit it for vetting to the NRF
This vetting procedure costs €25.00 and is payable by cheque or credit card only when you return your signed document.
Locumlink will not accept a Police or Garda certificate that is provided by a healthcare professional living in Ireland.
The on-line vetting application form is available in the members's area.
