Healthcare Contracts DBS Process

In June 2013, the DBS (formerly CRB) introduced significant changes to the way criminal record checks are obtained and used. Certificates are now issued to applicants only, and all employers are required to ask the individual to see their certificate.

For a small annual subscription of just £13 (free for volunteers) you can have your DBS Certificate kept up-to-date and take it with you from role to role, within the same workforce, where the same type and level of check is required.

You can join the Update Service online at www.gov.uk/dbs-update-service. Subscribing is quick and simple, and will bring you the following benefits;

  • Saves you time and money
  • One DBS Certificate is all you may ever need
  • Take your DBS Certificate from role to role within the same workforce
  • You are in control of your DBS Certificate – you give employers permission to check your certificate online and you can see who has checked it
  • Get ahead of the rest and apply for jobs DBS pre-checked
