CRB or “Disclosure and Barring Service” checks

There have been a number of queries about Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks (or what used to be CRB checks).  It does appear that it is the responsibility of individuals to pay for their own DBS checks (See Slide 6 of this presentation from Health Education West Midlands) where as in the past this was paid for by the Employer.  More information about DBS checks for Doctors in training can be found on the NHS Employers website.  It looks as though you may update your DBS check rather than repeat the process of applying for a new check and this can be done via the gov.uk website (thank you Matt).
