Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults

The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust is committed to the protection and safety of all patients, their families/carers and staff.

The Trust has in place robust policies and procedures agreed by the Board and external bodies, for example the CQC and local safeguarding boards.

The Trust has named individuals who have the responsibility for ensuring safeguarding matters are managed and escalated appropriately, both internally and externally.

All staff at The Walton Centre are required to undergo safeguarding training which is determined nationally and locally.

There are policies and procedures available for staff to access to enable them to respond appropriately to any safeguarding concern that may arise.
