We are committed to the safety and welfare of all the children and families who use our services, both in the hospital and in the community. Everyone who is employed by the trust understands that they have a responsibility to safeguard children and they are supported by the named doctor and nurse to do this. We follow the guidance in the London child protection procedures and work closely with colleagues from social services, particularly from Camden and Barnet.
Camden provide us with a team of social workers who are based within the hospital who can also be contacted for advice.
