Board Assurance Prompt – Safeguarding vulnerable people is everyone’s business

01 June 2011

This briefing is targeted at organisations that have a responsibility for Safeguarding Adults. It is intended to stimulate debate within NHS Boards, Local Authority Safeguarding Adults Boards and other public service partner boards. Constructive and informed dialogue encourages local health and social care economies to lay the foundations for better partnership working.

Safeguarding needs to be everyone’s business. The issue has implications for all concerned with local public service provision. We encourage GPs, healthcare provider managers and clinicians, PCT and cluster board members, local authorities, police, third sector organisations and patients’ advocates to all be concerned, both individually and organisationally, that they properly safeguard adults.
