Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)

In order to protect the interests of children and vulnerable adults to whom it provides a service, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust will carry out all necessary pre and post appointment checks.

In order to assess job related risks, the Trust needs to establish if applicants who may be offered certain positions have a criminal record in the UK or in another country that they can lawfully be required to disclose.

All successful applicants will be required to complete a “safer recruitment” self-declaration form prior to commencing employment.

Appointees to positions in clinical areas or with direct patient contact will be subject to a disclosure check through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) at either standard or enhanced level.

For applicants appointed to post in “non-clinical” areas this will involve completion of a “safer recruitment” self-declaration form only.

All information provided in relation to DBS checks will be treated with strictly confidentiality, and will be securely stored, handled and disposed of in line with DBS codes of practice.
