New safeguarding policy on missed appointments

Our safeguarding team has developed a new policy (available in the policies section on this site) to help care teams when patients don’t attend for appointments. The policy looks at situations in which patients are not brought or don’t attend for appointments or where staff are unable to get access to see patients. The policy helps professionals to consider risks, vulnerabilities, safeguarding concerns and what reasonable adjustments may be required to support a child or adult to have their health needs met.
