Following the submission of detailed representations to the Metropolitan Police, they have decided not to disclose information on our client’s enhanced DBS.

Background to Application | Kangs DBS Team

Kangs Solicitors were instructed to represent a health care professional in relation to information the Police wanted to include on her enhanced DBS certificate.

The information related to an allegation of assault against an elderly patient whilst our client was working within a leading London NHS Trust.

Route to Success | Kangs Pro-active Criminal Team

The case presented a number of difficulties, not least, because our client was initially convicted of the assault in the Magistrates’ Court, although this was overturned on appeal. Our client was also dismissed from her employment.

Following her dismissal, our client remained unemployed for a number of months whilst the content of the enhanced DBS certificate was challenged. This had both financial and emotional consequences for our client.

Kangs Solicitors prepared detailed and extensive submissions challenging all aspects of the Disclosure Notice. This involved the application of case law and a number of leading authorities in this niche area of law.

This successful appeal concludes a long and difficult period for our client and she is now looking forward to continuing her career as a health care professional.
