Safeguarding is everyone’s business and Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS FT aims to uphold all adults’ and children’s fundamental right to be safe from harm and exploitation. The Trust adopts the ‘Think Family approach’ which is embedded within practice.
One of the fundamental responsibilities in providing quality healthcare services is to ensure that vulnerable people are protected whilst receiving care. This is an important responsibility for each member of staff, whatever their role, and for the Trust as a partner in the wider health and social care system.
The Trust has a responsibility to promote the safety and welfare of people and families who use our services, including tackling domestic violence and abuse.
The Trust has strategies in place to support its safeguarding priorities and every year it produces an annual report on its activity and achievements throughout the year.
The Trust is an active member of Local Safeguarding Adults Boards and Children’s Partnerships across Doncaster, Rotherham and North Lincolnshire. The role of the boards is to ensure that local services are effective and well coordinated and that there is continuous learning and improvement.”
