  12. 12. APPOINTMENT AND SCREENING PROCEDURE - MEDICAL & DENTAL STAFF STATEMENT OF POLICY REGARDING THE DISCLOSURE OF FITNESS TO PRACTICE PROCEEDINGS BY A LICENCING/REGULATORY BODY AND RELATING TO CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS IN THE UK OR OVERSEAS __________________________________________________________ Registration with the General Medical Council or General Dental Council imposes on doctors and dentists the duty to provide a good standard of medical care for, and to behave appropriately towards patients. 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. Attached is a declaration which you must complete and return with your CV. Please note that your application cannot be processed unless this form is received with your CV. 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. If you would like to discuss what effect any previous convictions, police investigations or fitness to practise proceedings taken or being taken either in the UK or by an overseas licensing or regulatory body might have on your application, you may telephone Anne Holmes, Medical and Dental Team Lead on 0141 278 2657 in confidence, for advice.
