Disclosure & Barring Service Checks (DBS)


If your role requires you to come in contact with patients and vulnerable groups as part of your normal duties, you are required to disclose all past or pending charges, convictions, cautions, reprimands and warnings (spent and unspent). An applicant must disclose details of any such conviction(s) in order to protect the public. For a list of jobs that require a DBS check, visit the government DBS website.

We have a duty of care to provide a safe working environment to patients, clients, visitor and our staff. The post you have applied for is exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offender Act 1974. The Act prohibits any person making an application of employment to withhold details of any convictions which for other purposes are spent under the Act.

It is important that you complete the application form; guidance notes on completing an online disclosure will help you to do so. Please provide your address history covering the last 5 years, your National Insurance number, passport and driving licence.

To enable us to begin your form request, you will need to complete your DBS application online by applying for an Enhanced Disclosure from the Criminal Record Bureau and quoting your job title e.g. Staff Nurse or Carer or Teacher. Applicants: you can log on to the Capitarvs.co.uk website, or better still, click on the button “Begin Online DBS” to start your application form.

Refusing to apply for a criminal record check
You can refuse to have a criminal record check carried out if you think this type of check is not appropriate for the post you applied for. However, there are some jobs for which a DBS check is required by law. In this instance, if you refuse the check, we might not be able to take your application any further.
