Making Children Safer in Northamptonshire - Guidance for Health Care Staff
It is the responsibility of every NHS organisation to ensure that people in vulnerable circumstances are safe and receive the highest possible standard of care. NHS Nene and NHS Corby Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are responsible for ensuring safe systems of care that safeguard children at risk of abuse or neglect. The CCGs Quality & Safeguarding Team ensure that they have robust structures, systems, standards and an assurance framework which enables compliance with legal and local government arrangements.
NHS Nene and Corby CCG have issued a “Making Children Safer in Northamptonshire” guidance leaflet for health care staff that has been widely distributed across health care provider organisations and through the CCG localities to GPs.
