A new update of the NHS Safeguarding app was launched recently.

This iteration includes links to trusted safeguarding partners and updated content based on any new safeguarding legislation. The safeguarding contacts section of the app has also been updated to reflect the NHS regions and the local authorities within them.

The app has been developed with safeguarding colleagues to act as a comprehensive resource for healthcare professionals, carers and citizens to increase their awareness and understanding of safeguarding.

If you already have the app downloaded on your devices and have automatic updates on then the new version should launch for you. For those of you who haven't downloaded it yet, please scan your camera or QR code reader over the code below and it'll divert your phone to your app store directly to the the app.
