April 2020 Update
Please see important information here about a temporary arrangement being put in place by the Disclosure and Barring Service to help provide DBS checks and fast-track emergency checks of the adults’ and children’s barred lists, free of charge to healthcare and social care workers being recruited in connection with the care and treatment of COVID-19 in England and Wales.
Please note that due to current measures that have been put in place as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, the DBS ID checking guidance will be changed for a temporary period.
The change will enable:
- ID documents to be viewed over video link
- Scanned images to be used in advance of the DBS check being submitted
For more information about the changes, please visit www.gov.uk/government/news/covid-19-changes-to-dbs-id-checking-guidelines
