Public Health Wales launch NHS Wales Health Services Safeguarding Tool

The National Safeguarding Team at Public Health Wales have launched a new tool to help Health Boards and Trusts assess and improve their safeguarding arrangements.

The Safeguarding Maturity Matrix (SMM) allows services in the NHS to self-assess their safeguarding arrangements and identify their strengths and areas for improvement.

A successful pilot of the SMM in 2018 saw organisations self-assess and then meet to discuss results and improvement plans.

The Public Health Wales National Safeguarding Team will continue to provide support to Health Boards and Trusts to monitor their safeguarding arrangements.

You can find out more about the Safeguarding Maturity Matrix on the Public Health Wales website.
