Providing Employment References Policy

The purpose of South Staffordshire and Shropshire NHS Foundation Trust "Providing Employment References" Policy is to ensure there is a clear framework that can be followed upon the receipt of an employment reference request.

The Trust supports the concept of providing references in order to assist with employment processes, to ensure good relations with other employers and with both current and former individuals who have carried out work for the Trust.
