Disclosure and Barring Service checks

Disclosure and Barring Service checks

We understand that protecting your practice's reputation is essential, so in line with current legislation to undertake Disclosure and Barring Service checks (previously CRB), we’ve partnered with Complete Background Screening Ltd (CBS) to provide standard or enhanced level criminal checks to members at a preferential rate. 

Detecting criminal convictions before job candidates are hired and represent your practice is crucial in protecting a practice's integrity. This is where the standard checking service can help. 

If members want to join the NHS Performers List, they must undertake the enhanced level disclosure, including a check of the 'barred lists'. For more information call 01443 799900 or email [email protected], quoting the Association of Optometrists and your membership number.
