Login Register

The CRB has now been superceeded by the Disclosure & Barring Service.  ALL reference to CRB should be read as DBS.  Apart from the name change, the service remains essentially unchanged.

Following our inclusion on the list of Criminal Record Bureau CRB Umbrella Bodies, SONOGRAPHERS Medical is delighted to be able to offer Disclosure and Barring Service Criminal Record Disclosure checks for other companies and organisations.

It is important we follow the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) guidelines in this matter. Telephone us on 020 8551 1299, or email us, to discuss further.

The processing cost for a single Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Disclosure is £40.00 + VAT, plus the DBS Criminal Record Disclosure fee (Currently £44 for enhanced checked). Total charge £92.

Discounts applicable for bulk disclosures of 50+ in number.

Each external company must register with SONOGRAPHERS Medical and provide us with details of their standard recruitment processes. For each Criminal Record Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) application, we shall require full details of the nature of the employment and the reasons why it requires a Criminal Record Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Disclosure.

These requirements are mandatory for all Criminal Record Bureau Umbrella Bodies, and are not rules specifically created by SONOGRAPHERS Medical. They are a legal requirement since only certain job roles are eligible for criminal record checking).

We accept that it increases the amount of paperwork required by the client organisation, and shall do all we can to keep this to a minimum.
All Client organisations must abide by the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) rules on handling and storage of Disclosure information, and have clear written policies on employment of people with a conviction. Sample policies can be provided by SONOGRAPHERS Medical if required.

We can also provide a range of other consultancy services related to the recruitment and employment market, the most essential of which is vetting of Passports and other ID documents to confirm authenticity and validity.
