Safeguarding

The Trust is committed to safeguarding adults and works in partnership with a range of other agencies to ensure appropriate actions are taken locally to protect adults at risk of abuse.

The Safeguarding Adult Team supports our hospitals and community patients and staff.

We follow a multi-agency procedure for responding to suspected abuse of vulnerable adults. This means we have an agreement where organisations work together with the person who we think may be abused, to safeguard that person and take what actions we can.

Additionally we have our own policies to support staff to care for an adult at risk:

  • Safeguarding Adults
  • Mental Capacity Act
  • Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards
  • Restraint

Learning Disability Service

Ben Haywood and Nicola Cowley also offer support to people with learning disabilities and their families/carers.

If you need hospital care, we can support you and your family throughout. Hospital care might mean staying over night in hospital or just going for an appointment. We will help you and the hospital staff get to know each other. We will make sure the staff know how to make you feel most at ease. Read more about the learning disability service here.
