NHS Employers also have a duty to ensure that patients receive a good standard of medical care and ensure as far as possible the safety of patients. In accordance with NHS Circular PCS(DD) 2001/1, we therefore need to establish if you have been found guilty of a criminal offence, been bound over or cautioned or are currently the subject of proceedings which might lead to a conviction, an order binding you over or a caution, in the UK or any other country. Applicants for posts in the NHS are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Application packs include a declaration for applicants to compete declaring any previous or pending prosecutions or convictions, including those considered “spent” under this Act. This will also include a declaration of any cautions or bind overs. We also need to establish if you have been the subject of any fitness to practise proceedings in the past, or if any fitness to practise proceedings are being contemplated, by a licensing or regulatory body in the UK or another country and this is also reflected in the declaration.

This information will be treated in confidence and will not debar you from appointment unless the selection panel considers that it renders you unsuitable for appointment. In reaching such a decision we will consider the nature of the conviction/action, how long ago it took place and any other factors which may be relevant. Failure to disclose a criminal offence, having been bound over or cautioned or that you are currently the subject of criminal proceedings which might lead to a conviction, an order binding you over or a caution, or fitness to practise proceedings undertaken or being undertaken by an appropriate licensing or regulatory body, may disqualify you from appointment, or result in summary dismissal/disciplinary action and referral to the General Medical Council [General Dental Council] for consideration if such a discrepancy came to light.
