FAQs about Florence professionals

Can the same care professional come back to my organisation?

Absolutely. At Florence we encourage continuity of care as much as possible and have a favourites feature so you can invite staff back, again and again.

Do you interview your care professionals?

Yes. We interview every professional who joins Florence and perform rigorous background checks covering relevant training and qualifications, right-to-work and criminal history. See all requirements professionals must fulfil here.

Who decides the rates for care professionals?

You set your own rates but must comply with the minimum wage rate.

If an incident happens, what is your procedure?

Find out more about our incidents procedure and team here. Our governance team will investigate any reported incident thoroughly, and a copy of our Incident Management Policy can be requested.

If I don't want to work with a Florence care professional again, can I block them?

Yes, you can do this by visiting the care professional's profile via your account and selecting the ‘block’ option, then providing a reason for the block.

We'll respect your decision to block the care professional without question, but it helps improve quality of care if you also send an email to incidents@florence.co.uk to tell us why you don't want to work with the care professional anymore.
