The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust is committed to keeping safe all children, young people and vulnerable adults within its care and premises.

We recognise the duty of the Trust, and of each member of our staff, to safeguard and promote the safety of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We will always take action where there are concerns about the welfare of a vulnerable adult or child.

We have examined our arrangements for safeguarding children and can confirm that these arrangements are robust.
