Reduce duplicated CRB checks

I am all in favour of CRB checks, however why is one person required to have multiple checks? For example I have three! One for my main job as a hospital nurse. One for my occasional job as a bank nurse within the same hospital and one for activities I do at my church. This is time-consuming, expensive and unnecessary bureaucracy. One check should be enough. After the first check has been made, any new organisation should be able to do a quick on-line check to make sure it has already been done. By doing this they register an interest. Then if the person commits an offence, whoever requested the original check and anyone who has registered an interest should be informed 

Why does this idea matter?

Saves money

Saves time-new employees can start work more quickly.

Possibly some employers are put off doing the check by cost and time involved.
