We are passionate about keeping our patients safe when they are in our care and training all our staff to be able to recognise signs of abuse in all its forms.
Our Safeguarding Team makes sure we understand and work within all the guidelines and legal requirements for safeguarding. They also help to investigate any allegations or abuse or neglect - often in partnership with colleagues in other public services - and share learning points so we continually improve our services and safeguarding activity. We undertake enquiries into any allegations of abuse or neglect and disseminate learning points to improve services.
We make recommendations on aspects of safeguarding in order to meet the Trust's responsibilities on local and national guidance in relation to safeguarding.
