De Vere West One Conference Centre, London

Follow this conference on Twitter #AdultSafeguardingNHS

“One of the most important principles of safeguarding is that it is everyone’s responsibility. Health care staff frequently work with people in their moments of greatest need and can witness health and social inequalities which have a direct impact on the lives of people they care for.”

Adult Safeguarding: Roles and Competencies for Healthcare Staff

“394,655 concerns of abuse were raised during 2017-18, an increase of 8.2% on the previous year.......“Making Safeguarding Personal (MSP) is about having conversations with people about how to respond in safeguarding situations in a way that enhances involvement, choice and control as well as improving quality of life, wellbeing and safety.”
