Chaired by Pete Morgan Chair of the Board of Trustees PASAUK this conference will provide a practical guide to safeguarding vulnerable adults through improving process, policy and practice in safeguarding concerns and alerts in line with the NHS England 2015 Guidance and the Care Act 2014. 

Through national and legal updates, and practical case study sessions the conference will look at what should reported a safeguarding concern, training and educating frontline staff in raising concerns, when to involve the police, how to escalate concerns, and learning from concerns. 

-The purpose of the safeguarding alerts process is to ensure that the health system is able to raise concerns about individuals / families and act on information received from the health system or other agencies, (e.g. police or social care), in identifying those children or adults about whom there is an identified risk and take appropriate safeguarding action… The types of a safeguarding alert are potentially numerous and not necessarily easy to categorise. For the purposes of this policy a safeguarding alert is defined as information which indicates a risk to an individual or group.” NHS England June 2015
