Safeguarding children

Section 11 of the Children Act 2004 places a duty on every NHS Trust to have arrangements in place to ensure that the organisation and all staff working within it have regard to the need to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

The Trust regularly reviews its arrangements against these requirements and is compliant with them, and it issues a statement to this effect - please see What our priorities are and and how are we doing: Statements: Working Together To Safeguard Children - Declaration of Statutory Compliance.
