Safeguarding Children / Vulnerable Adults

Wolverhampton City Primary Care Trust believes that safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults is 'Everyone's Business'.
We also recognise that as a commissioner and provider to health and care services, we must meet the highest standards possible.

As a Commissioner the Primary Care Trust will work in partnership with service providers to make sure that:

  • The personal safety needs of children, young people and vulnerable adults are taken into account while their health and care needs are being met by all the staff who deliver services for the people of Wolverhampton. 
  • The PCT actively monitors providers to make sure that their staff are trained and kept up to date with safeguarding policies and procedures 
  • The PCT requires providers to make sure that staff are suitably trained so that they can recognise and support needs and are able to effectively manage concerns about vulnerability and safety.
  • The Trust Board receives reports twice each year which gives information on Safeguarding matters and numbers of children & adults affected.


As a Provider of Services, including West Park & Penn Hospital, Community Children's Services , Adult Community and Adult Mental Health Services  we are committed to:

  • Making sure that our staff have the training, resources and support so that they can fulfil their role in safeguarding children and vulnerable adults
  • Making regular reports to the commissioner of our services and partner organisations that inform how we are performing on levels of training across Provider PCT services.
  • Respecting the needs and confidentiality of our patients, clients and their carers and families, whilst recognising our duties and responsibilities in protecting the most vulnerable. 
  • Working in partnership to make Wolverhampton a safer place for everyone to live.
