Skilled Medical has successfully completed its onsite, annual surveillance audit to assess ongoing compliance against three standards, AS/NZS ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management Systems, New South Wales Health: 2018 and Health Purchasing Victoria: 2017 regarding the supply of locum and permanent medical staff.
Skilled Medical also gained inclusion of its nursing recruitment division within the scope of this audit.
This year’s annual surveillance audit confirmed Skilled Medical’s compliance against all audit standards. It also demonstrates the company’s effective quality management system across its business once again.
Conducted annually by an external auditor, Certex International, Skilled Medical is audited against its quality management systems, operations and outcomes of the three auditing standards.
The AS/NZS ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management System annual surveillance audit determines whether Skilled Medical’s business systems continue to meet the requirements across the following areas:
- Management Process
- Operations and Controls
- Management System
The NSW Health’s:2018 annual surveillance audit determines whether Skilled Medical’s systems continue to meet the accreditation standards for firms approved to supply locum medical staff to NSW Health facilities.
The Health Purchasing Victoria (HPV): 2017 standards annual surveillance audit determines whether Skilled Medical’s systems continue to meet the accreditation standards for firms approved to supply locum medical staff to Victorian Health facilities.
Overall, Skilled Medical’s level of compliance against AS/NZS ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management Systems, NSWH: 2018 and HPV: 2017 recruitment best practice was found to be very high.
Skilled Medical’s Director Dr David Campbell said, “As a leading medical recruitment company and now with the new Nursing Division, our 2021 annual surveillance audit outcome once again reflects our company’s ongoing commitment to quality and providing the highest service levels to our doctors, nurses and clients.” He said, “Our staff are committed to quality in all that they do and I sincerely thank them for their contributions.”
