COVID- 19 Update: Guidance for Right to Work Compliance
April 15, 2020

Fast-track DBS checks now available. So, emergency key workers can start working as soon as possible.

Prioritisation of NHS DBS Checks

The Disclosure & Barring Service has announced emergency measures to fast-track DBS checks for key emergency personnel and frontline healthcare professionals in order to aid the fight against coronavirus.

Under the recently enacted The Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 (Commencement No. 16) Order 2020 these enhanced DBS checks, including a screen against the adult and children’s barred list, will be free of the usual government charge for all eligible roles.

As an emergency worker:

  • Your application will be fast-tracked
  • Your application will be submitted as a volunteer check
  • This will waive the government fee of the DBS check
  • You will only pay a Veriphy administration fee

DBS checks for Volunteers

At Veriphy, we are doing everything we can to ensure that those who need DBS checks for critical key roles can apply immediately.

Before applying please ensure to read the DBS’s guidance on community volunteering.

Please note as a volunteer, you will not pay the government DBS check fee – just a Veriphy admin fee.

    The system was extremely easy to set up and we were up and running with it very quickly… It made a refreshing change to be in that position so quickly.

    Very clear & simple. Used it, without reading the manual of course, just to give it a try. Excellent service.

    I have just used Veriphy for the first time. It is excellent – so much easier than chasing old passports and utility bills that are sent by email.
