Care Staff will be allocated in line with the terms and conditions set out by the Royal Hospital. The appointed agency must provide the RHC with a completed proforma including a recent photograph of agency staff available and ensuring all training / certifications remain in date. At no times will the Royal Hospital accept agency staff that do not meet these criteria.
