Who needs a Criminal Record Check in the Pharmacy Environment?

To identify the appropriate individuals and levels for checks, each organisation should conduct a comprehensive risk assessment of roles within the pharmacy. This assessment encompasses contracted staff, temporary staff, bank staff, practitioners operating under practicing privileges, volunteers, students, and learners. Common roles in the pharmaceutical industry that may require a check include:

  • Pharmacists
  • Pharmacy Technicians
  • Dispensing Technicians
  • Drug Delivery Drivers
  • Healthcare Assistants and Managers

If you need assistance with the risk assessment process or guidance on introducing disclosures, we are here to support you. Simply click here for further guidance or call our dedicated DDC Team at 0116 260 3055 with any questions.

Meeting the CQC inspection criteria (where applicable).

Our systems are designed to easily allow account holders to provide evidence to a CQC inspector, where required. Once a DBS check is complete, you will be provided with everything you need to evidence a compliant DBS check. This ‘Preview Disclosure Notice’ is downloadable from the Client Area which can then be stored in personnel files. The ‘Preview Disclosure Notice’ also complies with Data Protection principles to ensure staff members’ personal information is kept safe and secure.
