There is a requirement for GPs and practice nurses to complete safeguarding adults training at level 3. Newly developed HEE online training is available for any health care professionals. This will provide 50% of the competencies for L3SGA. This is a free resource.

The remaining 50% is expected to be evidenced via attendance at seminars, events etc. NHSE guidance is expected soon on how this might be achieved.

The RCGP have developed 9 modules course on Mental Capacity Act that is specifically for doctors including primary care.  Please create an account and you can access this free training.

NHS England have produced a Safeguarding App that is freely available.

It gives a brief summary of what safeguarding means, statutory responsibilities, information sharing guide as well as particular areas to be aware of such as FGM, Modern slavery, PREVENT strategy, MCA and DOLs.

It gives specific information in relation to both safeguarding children as well as vulnerable adults and also has the key contact numbers for each area / boroughs local authority safeguarding teams.

Below is a link to NHSE where you can find more information about the App including where it can be downloaded.
