Medical HR

Congratulations on your conditional offer of employment with Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

We want to ensure that everything is in place prior to you starting your new position with the Trust. To do this, we need you to attend an Identification Appointment with us before your proposed start date (during the current Covid-19 pandemic all ID checks will be undertaken remotely and verified via video-call in line with NHS Employers guidance).

You can book the next available appointment now by following the link in your Conditional Offer Letter.

The offer letter will also provide instructions and information about the documentation you need to bring with you to your appointment.

We need all completed paperwork / documentation at least six weeks prior to your start date so we have time to process your details; therefore you will need to complete and return the paperwork listed below as soon as possible by email (scanned) or posted for the attention of the person named in your offer letter.

Please complete the following forms:

Please also be aware that you are required to complete a Self-Declaration Form.  The Self-Declaration form can currently be submitted electronically whilst we are not undertaking face-to-face ID checks

Your appointment is subject to clearance by the Trust’s Occupational Health Department. You must complete a pre-placement health questionnaire, which will be sent to you electronically by email from the Trust’s Occupational Health Care Provider – Team Prevent (sent from: appointments@teamprevent.co.uk).

The questionnaire must be completed online (using the same email address to register as the received address) as soon as you receive the link and copies of your identified and validated (recognised UK/European provider clearance) TB, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Varicella Hepatitis B (SAG), Hepatitis C and HIV pathology reports will need to be attached via the online portal. 

If full occupational health clearance has not been granted in time for your first working day, you may not be able to commence in post, resulting in a delay to your start date and remuneration. 

In your own interests and those of the Trust, you may be required during the course of your appointment to undergo medical examination by the Trust’s Occupational Health Provider or an independent medical practitioner.

Finally, please familiarise yourself with the Staff Confidentiality Code of Conduct included in the Information Governance Handbook available to download at the foot of this page. Please also take some time to read the other related documents below, which include information on parking permits, hospital maps, the Medical HR office location, appraisal information and much more… 

If you have any questions or enquiries for our team, please email wshnt.medicalstaffing@nhs.net or call 01903 205111.

Please send all post to: Medical HR Department, HR Building, Worthing Hospital, Lyndhurst Road, Worthing, West Sussex, BN11 2DH
