Legislation required to bring the COVID Fast Reduced Price Service to an end has been successfully laid in parliament and will come into force on 11 May 2023.

Since March 2020 the DBS has supported the government’s response to the pandemic by providing reduced price checks to applicants in health and social care roles related to or impacted by COVID. Discussions between Home Office and the DHSC have concluded that in order to bring our services back into line with wider government policy this service should now come to a close.

The legislation required to bring the COVID Fast and Reduced Proce Service to an end has been successfully laid in parliament, and we therefore are no longer able to offer this reduced price service.
