Paperwork! For most people, form filling is not high on their enjoyment list. Neither is trying to navigate the various requirements across different States and health services. That’s where we come in.
Any doctor who has worked in more than two locations (and that’s most people) will agree that it can be such a pain completing various documents, online checks and making sure everything is still valid in the process. I often have conversations with our doctors about these differing requirements, and I know it is a cause for great frustration.
However, there is some credentialing paperwork that is broadly required across most health services. Because of this we have created our own checklist - the Prescript Quality Standards (PQS).
PQS has three main benefits:
➕ Hospitals, clinics and practices can have peace of mind that each Prescript doctor has met a consistent level of background checks.
➕ Doctors can rely on PQS to help their applications stand out, plus minimise paperwork duplication.
➕ Internally we use PQS to judge when a doctor is ‘job ready’ - only doctors that have met the Prescript Quality Standards are able to start in a new position.
Prescript Quality Standards (PQS)
What is part of the PQS checklist?
✔️ PQS Prescript Interview Report - with one of our medical recruitment partners
✔️ PQS Registered with Prescript as a candidate
✔️ PQS Answered disclosure questions
✔️ PQS Medical Board Registration checked
✔️ PQS Shared a copy of driving licence and passport
✔️ PQS Provided proof of qualifications - Primary Degree and Fellowship
✔️ PQS CV updated for recent work history
✔️ PQS Right to work checked (citizenship and visas)
✔️ PQS Google keyword search
✔️ PQS Three reference reports (two as a minimum)
What is not part of the PQS checklist?
❌ Working with children checks *
❌ Police clearance reports *
* These are location specific and requested by the hospital, clinic or practice.
