Applying for a DBS check as a GP

DBS Update Service

To avoid the complication of having to apply for a further certificate throughout your career we recommend that you sign up to the online update service. For £13 per year a copy of your DBS check will be kept up to date and online, and can be made available to future employers to check (Please note this must be applied for within 14 days of receiving a new DBS check)
