Information for GPs


The Safeguarding Partnership Board (SPB) recognises that Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility. In Jersey, GP practices provide an essential link in contributing to the safety of both children and adults.

Procedures

The SPB has produced Multi-Agency Procedures for working to safeguard children and adults.   These procedures are available online, follow these links for Children’s Procedures and Adult Procedures.

Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)

The Safeguarding Partnership Board has produced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which explains how it seeks to work with partner agencies. An increasing number of GP practices are signatories of the MOU.

In order to assess your Practice from a safeguarding perspective, you can access a GP specific audit template.

Follow this link to download the first voluntary audit of MoU signatories results.
