Staff we employ
Nurses, RMN, RGN, healthcare assistants, support workers, domestic staff.
Ucare Services Ltd will undertake Disclosure Barring Services (DBS) formerly known as Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) checks for all applicants, and these will be valid for 12 calendar months from the date of issue (for nursing and caring staff) and for 3 years for other types of staff. DBS checks undertaken via another organisation are valid for nursing and caring workers.
All DBS checks will be of the enhanced type, and must include both POVA and POCA checks. Ucare Services Ltd has a very strong policy on Disclosure Barring Services checks and the company aim to balance safety against being fair and reasonable.
If we decided to possibly reject the candidate based on information contained in the DBS check, we then request a statement from the candidate detailing the circumstances of the incident(s), how they are not related to the role and what actions/behaviours the candidate has gone since the incident(s) occurred. We then balance this statement against the candidate’s work history, references and interview notes prior to deciding whether to accept or reject the candidate.
All workers are required to inform Ucare Services Ltd if any relevant incidents happen after we have received an unqualified Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) report, formerly Criminal Records (CRB) as covered under the declaration on the application form.
Ucare services is commited to equality and diversity. Our commitment to equalitymeans thatwe are fair everyone in everything we do. Our commitment to diversity means that we value people of every kind. We value their religion, racial background, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability.
