Safeguarding Declaration

Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is committed to the protection of vulnerable children and adults. The CCG will execute its statutory duties under the Children Act 2004 and the Care Act 2014 by ensuring that all staff are trained to the required level according to their role and responsibilities. The principle philosophy is that safeguarding is everybody’s business and all staff will respond to concerns, raise safeguarding awareness and address any emerging issues.

As a commissioning organisation the CCG will ensure that all health services contracted by it have robust processes in place to prevent, identify and act upon abuse of any patient, this includes those services having clear accessible policy and procedures, safer recruitment, training and governance systems.
