Safeguarding Adults

CQC Registration

From April 2010 it is a legal requirement for all healthcare providers to be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and comply with the essential standards of quality and safety and their associated outcomes. Outcome 7 of the essential standards sets out the requirements for Trusts in safeguarding children and adults from abuse. For 2011/12 the RUH is registered with the CQC with no conditions applied.

The Safeguarding Adults Annual Report for 2010/11 was presented at Trust Board in December 2011.
