Training around human trafficking for *NON-CLINICAL FRONT-FACING* staff

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

• Is there training provided to NON-CLINICAL FRONT-FACING staff about human trafficking and modern slavery in your Trust?
• If training is delivered in your Trust, which staff receive or are eligible to receive this training? Is the training compulsory and how is attendance / completion measured? What format does this training take (e.g. e-learning, face-to-face, etc.)? How long does the training take to complete?
• If there is no training in your Trust, is human trafficking incorporated into a safeguarding training programme or policy? If it is part of a safeguarding programme, does that programme also include a section on the Prevent policy?
• For either stand-alone training or training which is incorporated into a safeguarding programme or policy (please specify which): Are staff trained in potential clinical indicators for human trafficking victims? Are staff trained in who to refer a potential human trafficking case to? Are staff trained on the questions to ask to ascertain whether a patient is a victim of human trafficking? How often is the training completed?

Yours faithfully,

Ruth Atkinson

Dear Ruth

Further to your enquiry I can confirm that North West Ambulance Service does not provide training to NON-CLINICAL staff on human trafficking and modern slavery.

In terms of Prevent, we do have a section which details what Prevent is on our internal intranet which is accessible by all clinical and non-clinical staff.

I hope this information is of assistance.

Kind regards
