Chiropodists are regulated healthcare professionals therefore you can expect to undergo an enhanced DBS check with barred lists to verify your suitability for the role.

In caring for people’s feet and ankles, chiropodists come into close contact with the public so the highest level of DBS check is necessary for any chiropodist wishing to work in the UK.

A DBS check for a chiropodist is an enhanced DBS check with barring lists.

The search will be undertaken by the Disclosure and Barring Service and will check for any unspent or spent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings. The DBS will also search for any further non-conviction information from relevant police forces and check the children’s and vulnerable adults barred lists.

This level of formal, nationwide background check is necessary for all regulated healthcare professionals due to the level of engagement with the public your work involves. Those who work with unsupervised contact and in influential roles are understandably subject to the most stringent checks.

For chiropodists, regulation by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) operates within these statutory requirements. All registrants must meet the requirements of the DBS as set out in the 1974 Rehabilitation of Offenders Act and chiropodists have a duty to ensure any convictions or cautions are declared.
