As an organisation using the DBS (Criminal Records Bureau) Disclosure service to assess applicants’ suitability for positions of trust, Wessex Local Medical Committees Limited complies fully with the DBS (CRB) Code of Practice and undertakes to treat all applicants for positions fairly. It undertakes not to discriminate unfairly against any subject of a Disclosure on the basis of a conviction or other information revealed.
The person going through a DBS check (the applicant) must give their employer original documents to prove their identity (not copies). The documents needed will depend on the route the application takes. The applicant must try to provide documents from Route 1 first.
Wessex LMCs are pleased to announce that our DBS application service has now moved to an online platform, which means a much faster, efficient and bespoke service for you, our Practices – with a turnaround from ‘application to certificate’ taking on average just 5 working days.
