Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974
(Relevant only if applying for a position involving access to patient records or face to face contact with patients) Under the Act, most sentences by a Court for criminal offences may be regarded as spent and disregarded, for most purposes, after a specified period of time and need not then be disclosed. However, the appointment for which you have applied is one to which the Rehabilitation of offenders Act (Exceptions) Orders apply, you are therefore required to declare any criminal convictions and enquiries and checks may be made in that respect.

A DBS check will be carried out, if you are successful in being offered the job. Please complete the declaration below: If required to complete a DBS application form, I can state that to the best of my knowledge and belief, there will not be a positive disclosure made that will preclude me from working with vulnerable adults and children.
