Safeguarding is everyone's business and Nottinghamshire Healthcare aims to uphold all adults' and children's fundamental right to be safe from harm and exploitation.
One of the fundamental responsibilities in providing quality healthcare services is to ensure that vulnerable people are protected whilst receiving care. This is an important responsibility for each member of staff, whatever their role, and for the Trust as a partner in the wider health and social care system.
The Trust has a responsibility to promote the safety and welfare of people and families who use our services, including tackling domestic violence and abuse.
The Trust has strategies in place to support its safeguarding priorities and every year it produces an annual report on its activity and achievements throughout the year.
The Trust is an active member of Nottingham City Safeguarding Adults Board and Safeguarding Children Board and Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board and Safeguarding Children Board. The role of the boards is to ensure that local services are effective and well coordinated and that there is continuous learning and improvement.
The team has recently created a video called Ask Me, which explains how we can support people to be open about their personal circumstances, which might affect their recovery.
