New Guidance On DBS Checks
The CQC has issued revised guidance on DBS checks. The new guidance states that;
There is no requirement for a service that directly employs its own staff to repeat DBS checks within a set period. For example, there is no blanket rule such as re-checking all employees every three years. However, employers can re- check their staff whenever they think it is necessary. Any additional checks should be proportionate to risk.
