NHS Thurrock CCG Safeguarding Children Declaration / Statement
The CCG is committed to safeguarding children across the organisation. The safety and welfare of children who come into contact with our services either directly or indirectly is paramount and all staff have a responsibility to ensure that best practice is followed, including compliance with statutory requirements.
Safeguarding is a fundamental element of commissioning plans as set out in the planning guidance and, therefore, is an area that forms a core part of the CCG's commissioning assurance process.
