Safeguarding Adults

Safeguarding Adults in the Royal United Hospital Bath

  • We ensure that all our staff are safe to work with vulnerable adults by carrying out Disclosure and Barring Service checks
  • We have a policy on Safeguarding Adults which aims to ensure that all staff working with vulnerable adults have training in how to respond if they suspect a vulnerable adult is being abused and how to support this person.
  • We are committed to working closely with the police, social services and community health staff to prevent abuse and to respond to possible situations of abuse to support the vulnerable adult and keep them safe.
