Adult Safeguarding: Roles and Competencies for Health Care Staff

The Adult Safeguarding: Roles and Competencies for Health Care Staff intercollegiate document outlines the professional standards that all staff at healthcare organisations will need to meet if they are to be involved in adult safeguarding. Published in August 2018, the guidance aims to safeguard anyone over the age of 18 at risk of abuse, harm or neglect because of their need for care and or support, who is unable to safeguard themselves.

Safeguarding Children and Young People: Roles and Competencies for Healthcare Staff

Published in January 2019, the Safeguarding Children and Young People: Roles and Competencies for Healthcare Staff intercollegiate document provides a clear framework which identifies the safeguarding competencies for all staff, clinical and non-clinical, who work in any healthcare setting. 

The safeguarding intercollegiate documents provide a robust framework to ensure that primary care staff are equipped for their safeguarding duties. 

The RCGP supplementary guide to safeguarding training requirements for all primary care staff provides a brief summary of the safeguarding training requirements for all who work in a primary care setting (clinical and non-clinical staff).
