Safeguarding

Healthshare is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of adults, children and young people and protecting them from risk of harm.

Healthshare has a statutory duty to ensure arrangements are in place in which to achieve this. This is reflected by:

  • A clear line of accountability for safeguarding, reflected in our governance arrangement
  • A dedicated lead for safeguarding adults and children
  • A dedicated doctor who is responsible for safeguarding adults and children
  • Clear systems to train all staff to recognise and report safeguarding issues
  • Arrangements to share information between agencies and commissioners
  • Monitoring through quality assurance processes

Who do I contact?

If you need advice and guidance from a member of our safeguarding team:

  • If it is an emergency, or if the child, young person or adult is at immediate risk, then call the police on 999
