Safeguarding Adults policy

The policy aims to ensure all CCG staff are aware of their specific roles and responsibilities in relation to safeguarding adults and know how and when to raise a concern. It also outlines the role of the Named and Designated professionals. The policy is designed to take into account the principles identified within the Care Act Guidance 2014 and the “Safeguarding Vulnerable People in the Reformed NHS: Accountability and Assurance Framework 2013. As a commissioning organisation the CCG has an explicit responsibility to ensure provider compliance around adult safeguarding, this is clearly identified within the policy.
