2. DBS

As part of the application process you are required to undergo an Enhanced DBS check. Before completing the on-line DBS form it is important that you read the guidance notes entitled Completing the On-Line Disclosure and Barring Service Application Form (Doc, 152kb) as these notes contain important information in relation to the passwords and codes needed to complete the form.

Once you have completed the on-line form you will need to make an appointment for a face-to-face interview in order that your documents and on-line application may be validated by an authorised officer.  A face-to-face interview can be undertaken via video link (Doc, 142kb) providing the authorised officer is in receipt of your original documents. This face-to-face interview must be undertaken within 3 months of completing your on-line DBS form.  Failure to attend within 3 months will be considered as ‘application withdrawn’ and your on-line form will be removed from the database.

Please ensure you make a note of the reference number (given upon completion of the form) as you will be asked for it when booking a face-to-face appointment.  You can arrange an appointment by e-mailing or by telephoning your nearest NWSSP Primary Care Services office

Please note that you cannot be included in a Medical Performers List until we have had sight of your enhanced DBS disclosure certificate in order to confirm that there has been a satisfactory outcome to any information received.  Please note that having a criminal record may not necessarily be a bar from inclusion in a Health Board’s Medical Performers List

You may access an on-line DBS application form by using the following link:
