The safety and welfare of children and adults is of paramount importance to NHS North West Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). There is a hosted Surrey wide safeguarding team.

Designated professionals for safeguarding provide strategic leadership, expert advice and support to all Surrey CCG's and partner organisations. The CCG works in close collaboration with other CCGs within Surrey to ensure that all of the services we commission provide high quality, safe and effective care.

What we do

The following measures ensure that safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults is given priority and is discharged effectively across the local health community:

  • The CCG has executive level membership of the Surrey Safeguarding Children and Adult Boards to ensure that safeguarding is at the forefront of service planning.
  • The CCG has senior membership of local Safeguarding Groups.
  • The CCG works closely with the Local Authority to assess and ensure the provision of co-ordinated integrated services to meet the needs of the local population, including specialist services for vulnerable groups.
  • The CCG ensures that safeguarding children and adult strategies and associated policies are in place, including safe recruitment of staff, a whistle-blowing policy and safeguarding training and supervision policies.
  • The CCG ensures that providers of services are held to account through the regular review of safeguarding arrangements.
