Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults
Everyone should be able to live their life without fear of abuse, harassment, or neglect. Our safeguarding teams work across our hospitals and communities to help our teams:
- spot the signs of harm, and raise concerns where appropriate
- support children and vulnerable adults where harm has happened
We also work with colleagues in our local councils to make sure our community is safe and healthy.
We are fully committed to ensuring that all patients, including children, are cared for in a safe, secure and caring environment.
Our responsibilities and statutory duties are outlined in our Safeguarding children declaration.
