Safeguarding patients

Safeguarding means protecting peoples’ health, wellbeing and human rights, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. It is a key part of providing high-quality health and social care.

Those most in need of protection include:

  • children and young people
  • adults, such as those receiving care in their own home, people with physical, sensory and mental impairments, and those with learning disabilities.

We aim to ensure every child, young person and adult who uses our services is free from abuse or neglect. Everyone at the Trust works to help protect them and promote their welfare.
