Training about Human Trafficking for non-clinical front-facing staff

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Kettering General Hospital 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

Chauhan Meena,

Dear Chauhan Meena,

Thank you for your response. As my request was exclusively about non-clinical front-facing staff, I would just like to clarify what percentage of such staff are eligible to receive safeguarding training?

Is such training mandatory for non-clinical front-facing staff?
If so, how is attendance measured?
Does training include a section on the Prevent policy?

Yours sincerely,

Ruth Atkinson

Chauhan Meena,

Dear Ms Atkinson

Chauhan Meena,

Dear Ms Atkinson

In response to your additional questions to FOI Ref 2934 ALL staff must undergo or are eligible to safeguarding training at level 1 and 2. However all Registered professionals must have level 2 training. Non-registered staff may still complete level 2. Competency job matching will determine who should undergo the training - therefore non-clinical staff may undergo training but is job-role dependant. The training includes a section on Prevent policy. One way of measuring attendance is by register sheets - but all is logged on a rolling programme by the department, where those compliant and non-compliant are inputted along with dates of when training runs out.

For additional questions regarding safeguarding training, please feel free to forward through a new Freedom of Information request where we will be happy to provide a response within the timeframe.
