HSE ADULT SAFEGUARDING DRAFT POLICY (2019)
The HSE Adult Safeguarding Policy Review Development Group concluded their work on devising a revised Draft HSE Adult Safeguarding Policy in recent months. The final draft of the revised Adult Safeguarding Policy was endorsed by HSE Leadership in early June. The National Safeguarding Office and the Review Chair, Martina Queally, Chief Officer, Community Healthcare East would like to thank all those who contributed in any way to this revised policy.

We are also just about to produce the National Board’s annual report which charts our work over the past twelve months.Read More
