In this episode of our Be Curious series, safeguarding expert Dave Blain interviews Dr Suzanne Smith, Executive Director for Barring and Safeguarding at The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

We talk to Dr. Smith about her safeguarding career and her current position in the DBS. We also address referrals and why these are few in both the NHS and independent ambulance sector, risk to children and vulnerable adults and safeguarding, and sharing of information with the DBS.

We also ask Dr Smith a big question… “If you have the opportunity to change one thing about the DBS processes and systems, what do you think you would like to see changed?” Watch the video to find out what she says.

This video is part of a wider series of Be Curious talks. You can explore other videos in the series on our news page.
