Safeguarding Assurance

Committed to safeguarding children and adults

Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals Trust Board are fully committed to providing the highest standards of safeguarding practice.

The Trust believes that everyone has a right to:

  • Live free from violence, fear and abuse
  • Be protected from harm and exploitation
  • Be independent - which may involve some risk
  • Say 'No' to anything they don't fully understand

The Trust considers that safeguarding is the responsibility of all staff, both clinical and non-clinical. The Trust will discharge its safeguarding duties and provide assurance of this to the CCG. All staff have a duty of care to share concerns about a patient or staff welfare if they believe they are suffering, or likely to suffer harm.


If you are concerned a patient is being abused or neglected, please call 01932 723513 or the Surrey Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 0300 470 9100.

If you need help or advice please contact: Surrey Safeguarding Children's Board or Surrey Safeguarding Adult Board.
