Being an online recruitment company Bookamed shall use video link (such as Skype, FaceTime, etc) as the primary method to conduct identity checks and verify the Right to Work (such as their passport) document. When the video link method is used the GP Locum shall first send the original identity and Right to Work documents to Bookamed. On receipt of the documents Bookamed shall then contact the GP Locum via video link to complete the check in the presence of the GP Locum (ensure the document is genuine, photographs are consistent with the appearance of the person on the screen, etc) before copying the document as necessary and returning the originals to the GP Locum. Wherever possible Bookamed shall conduct face-to-face interviews to verify the proof of Identity and Right to Work documents. The GP Locum consents to Bookamed using additional third party tools to verify the authenticity of the original documents provided.
