Default going back to UK.. do i get a police check before laving new zealand?

New to posting and forums and all...
Does anyone have experience of getting a ppolice check in New Zealand before heading back to UK (scotland) to get a job in NHS? or have got one once back?

Hi and welcome to BE
I don't think we have many NZ people using the Nursing forum so I'll move you to the New Zealand area, I'm sure someone there can help

You probably need to contact the recruitment section of the NHS. You may just need a UK police check, even though you haven't been there. Sounds odd, but I had a friend who was a social worker and they weren't interested in her NZ record, they just did a UK one even though she was straight from NZ with no UK experience. I guess it was a box-ticking exercise.

I (a nurse) probably would just in case. They may not request it but if they do then it'll save you a lot of hassle.

I (luke) wouldn't both, let the NHS request one from the NZ Police if they wanted to.

I doubt you yourself have to prove you don't have any crimes, only that you declare any misdoings.
