Dear The Walton Centre NHS Foundation 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 enquiries,

Can I confirm for the training on human trafficking that that *non-clinical front-facing* staff receive in safeguarding:

- has it now come into force? in the last FOI, you said it would come in in March 2016.
- how long does such training take?
- is such training received on induction?

Yours sincerely,
