Safeguarding patients

Croydon Health Service NHS Trust takes seriously its responsibilities to ensure that there are processes in place within the organisation to protect children and young people and adults at risk from abuse and harm.

Safeguarding is everyone’s business

We have a duty to make sure everyone receive safe and effective care from our services including families and carers.

Through the Safeguarding Adult and Safeguarding Children’s Partnership Boards, we work closely with the main statutory agencies – local authorities, the police and other NHS organisations – to promote safer communities to prevent harm and abuse and also to deal with suspected or actual cases.
