Safeguarding

Safeguarding, adults, children and young people

Safeguarding is a fundamental component of all care provided within the Trust. West Herts Hospitals NHS Trust understands and acknowledges that safeguarding children and adults is everyone’s responsibility and we all have a duty to protect our patients from abuse and harm.

Hertfordshire Safeguarding adults board

The Hertfordshire Safeguarding Adults Board is a partnership with many organisations who work with and support adults at risk in Hertfordshire. The board works with organisations to make sure adults at risk are cared for and supported somewhere free from abuse, harassment, violence or aggression both at home and at work.

Domestic Abuse

The Trust is aware that some individuals may be experiencing domestic abuse. The Trust will develop a culture of understanding of the impact of domestic violence has on an individual and make appropriate referrals to specialist services.
