DBS duty to refer and how to make a referral
NHS Employers and the DBS have teamed up help you understand the duty to refer process and how to make a referral.
NHS Employers have created two podcasts in their series about the Disclosure and Barring Service.
In the first podcast, Nyla Cooper from NHS employers and Lyn Gavin from the DBS chat about the legal duties to refer, with examples from the NHS and details on what to do if you’re unsure.
The second podcast is about the type of information you might need to give when making a referral, and why it’s important for the DBS to have this level of information.
You can watch these podcasts on the NHS Employers website.
We’ve also published guidance about making barring referrals to the DBS.
