Quick question as google is full of white noise. What's the deal about getting an enhanced DBS? The gov website says i can't apply for it, employers only apparently. Is that right? Anyone managed to get one for themselves?

Empoyers only.


Assume this is for the volunteering?  If they need you, they'll sort it.  I don't think they'll need you as so many have applied who will have eDBS

No, it's for working at the new field hospital at the Excel. Due to the procurement system they are using they can't run the checks themselves and need people who can get one somehow.

There's some websites where they offer them but not sure of the validity...

On the Gov UK website there is a list of umberella organisations who can do an enhanced DBS for you. I used DBS Services in Wakefield. No problem.
