United Medicare has its origins as a medical doctor recruitment agency that is now dedicated to providing Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS), Disclosure Scotland and AccessNI as an umbrella body. A low staff turnover and years of experience providing combined DBS, Disclosure Scotland and AccessNI with our existing staff forms the basic foundation for a superior service.

United Medicare is certified for quality management through ISO 9001:2000 and security audit with ISO 27001:2005. We have been a registered body for Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) which was previously called Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) since its inception from 2002.

United Medicare was successful in securing a contract for providing DBS checks for Torbay Council since 2007 that has led to reduced direct and indirect costs and faster service. We process AccessNI application forms from all other clients such as Schools, care and nursing homes, medical and dental surgeries, other medical facilities, child care facilities and other miscellaneous organisations.
