What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding is a wide-ranging term that encompasses having suitable policies, procedures and risk assessments in place to protect service users who may for one reason or another, often dictated by their personal circumstances, be vulnerable to abuse.  Safeguarding arrangements are therefore key to ensuring service user well being and is why QCS has created a specific policy and Mock Inspection Toolkit workbook to ensure that it is central to care management.

CQC Safeguarding Protocol

The CQC Protocol on Safeguarding has been designed to support Key Lines of Enquiry and provides the principles for determining how the CQC inspectorate ensure that service users are being protected and their rights and choices respected.  It is fundamental aspect of their work and is encapsulated directly with the Health and Social Care Act 2008. The QCS management system mirrors this by ensuring that all policies encourage people to live their life free abuse.

A universal approach to meeting safeguarding requirements

Protecting vulnerable users isn’t just about meetings the requirements of the Key Lines of Enquiry, it means complying with all of the Fundamental Standards and ensuring that you have a robust set of policies in place which are backed up by high standards being maintained by competent and qualified staff. Service Users must be involved in decisions which can affect them; this isn’t just an holistic approach to care, but a mandatory, legal requirement. QCS supports this approach through a management system that encourages documentation through recorded forms and risk assessments.

The QCS management system can provide you with the cornerstone of safeguarding, namely compliant, service-user-focussed policies and the self-assessment tools you need to for peace of mind.

  • Good system, Great Customer care executive

    QCS is easy to navigate to find policies. if you speak to the right person who have more in depth idea about the content, you'll get good guidance. I commend the team for being helpful, especially Kate Lockley who's been superb in clarifying mind-boggling areas to customise my policies. She's been very approachable and patient despite throwing loads of questions. Staff like her makes the QCS system worth having, knowing that someone can always be there to listen to any… Cath
