Living a life free from harm and abuse is a fundamental human right and an essential requirement for health and wellbeing.

Our aim is to ensure that all the services we commission provide high quality, safe and effective care to our patients. We will do this by:

  • Putting patients first in how services are commissioned. 
  • Using robust assurance to understand and improve safeguarding arrangements.

Advice and training is available from the Newham Safeguarding Children Board and Safeguarding Adults Board.
