Free and fast DBS checks for health and social care roles treating COVID-19 from Verifile

  • 15 Apr 2020

In response to COVID-19, the DBS removed their costs for Enhanced DBS checks on 31 March and said they would fast-track adults’ and children’s barred lists checks. Verifile can deliver free and fast criminal record checks in line with the government’s own commitment. 

To support the emergency recruitment of health and social care employees and volunteers dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, both the DBS and Verifile have temporarily removed the admin fees for Enhanced DBS checks resulting in a free service for this check. 

As an umbrella body of the DBS, Verifile's direct link and automated processes can deliver fast-tracked responses in line with the government’s commitment to a 24-hour turn-around time.
