Working With Children Checks (WWCC)
All staff likely to come into contact with children, or supervise people who work with children, during the course of their employment are required to maintain a current South Australian working with children check at all times
National Police Checks
Employees who do not meet the above criteria are required to provide a current National Police check prior to commencement at St Andrew's Hospital. Employment is subject to a satisfactory check. Police Certificates will be regarded as strictly confidential.
There is a potential for health care workers to be exposed to and transmit vaccine preventable diseases such as hepatitis B, influenza, measles, rubella, and pertussis if not immune. St Andrew's HR team will assist all new healthcare workers to ensure they are up to date with their immunisations on employment.
