The DBS filtering system is extremely complicated, leaving both individuals and employers unclear about what is required and why. We welcomed the publication of Nacro’s guidance on filtering, and its support with delivering a joint webinar. The webinar was aimed at increasing awareness and understanding of the filtering system for NHS organisations and was very well received. We are keen to continue to work with Nacro to ensure that NHS organisations are clear about some of the more complex aspects of the filtering rules.
