How this check was done

Our judgement

People were cared for, or supported by, suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff.

Reasons for our judgement

When we visited Alderley Edge Medical Practice we were concerned that certain staff did not have Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks. These checks help employers make safer recruitment decisions and may prevent unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups. The level of check may be enhanced or standard and can be determined by a risk assessment of the post which the staff member occupies.

The provider sent us an action plan informing us that DBS checks had now been received in relation to the clinical staff who work at he practice. We confirmed with the provider that the checks had been provided at the most comprehensive level available.
