Safeguarding children and adults in the future NHS

The NHS Commissioning Board Authority has published interim advice on arrangements to secure children’s and adult safeguarding, which provides additional information, in particular, to emerging clinical commissioning groups.  A covering letter reminds PCTs and SHAs of the vital importance of maintaining appropriate arrangements as the health system goes through transition.

The interim advice, with a covering letter from Jane Cummings and Shaun Gallagher (Acting Director General, Social Care, Local Government and Care Partnerships), is on the safeguarding web page.

NHS chief executives will wish to consider the implications of this interim advice.
