DBS Checks Processing Service

Meet Avon Local Medical Committee

Avon Local Medical Committee

Avon Local Medical Committee became a Registered Umbrella Body of the Disclosure and Barring Service in June 2010 and has been processing DBS checks for healthcare staff ever since. They are able to carry out enhanced, standard and volunteer checks.

What they offer

Avon LMC provide an online DBS service which is easy to use with a swift turnaround on DBS applications. This service means there is no paperwork which means a reduction in errors with the added benefit of no postal costs. Also, it is free to register so you just pay for the checks as and when you need them.

The process is very easy to follow, and there are prompts along the way on how to complete the application form. If errors are made the system will flag them up. They also provide a comprehensive guide on using the system when organisations register for the system. They are happy to answer queries either by email or on the phone.

Importance of DBS Checks

A DBS check is usually carried out as part of an organisation’s recruitment and vetting processes. It helps organisations make safer recruiting decisions.
You will want to ensure that your recruitment process goes as smoothly and quickly as possible. By using Avon LMC for your DBS checks they can process checks quickly with most results being received within five working days. It is also important that organisations consider renewing DBS checks to ensure that vulnerable adults and children are safe.
