Disclosure and Barring Service

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Interface is a bi-directional interface between ESR and the DBS 3rd Party solutions.

The interface supports two vital business functions for NHS Employing Authorities, which in turn help them to meet some of the key Francis’ Report recommendations:

  • allows ESR Users to monitor an individual’s DBS Certificate (where permission has been granted) through the DBS Update Service
  • enables users to initiate the DBS Referral process via ESR – where an individual has posed a safeguarding concern
