Police clearance a requirement at SSH
Our patient's dignity and safety are of the utmost importance to us and it stands to reason that a person with a criminal record that can negatively impact on our patient's safety and security, cannot be employed or be allowed to volunteer at Stepping Stone Hospice & Care Services or any other similar facility. It is for this reason that we subscribe to the requirement stipulated by the Hospice Palliative Care Association that all staff and volunteers working with the most vulnerable people, requires a Police Clearance Certificate.
We started implementing this requirement in 2017 and on Wednesday 27 June 2018, the remainder of the volunteers and staff, including the Management team, applied for their Police Clearance Certificates.
