The Department of Health is developing a new policy on safeguarding to protect all adults using health services from harm. As part of the consultation process for the new policy the Department of Health has asked the IPH to conduct focus groups with different groups of people about what kind of behaviours they consider harmful and what they would like to see included in the new policy. More information about what those focus groups involve can be found in the links below.
For more information about the Adult Safeguarding Focus Groups, please contact Aideen Sheehan at Aideen.firstname.lastname@example.org or 00353 1 4786304.
