Protecting Children and Vulnerable Adults

Safeguarding vulnerable adults

All staff at GRMC take their responsibilities to protect more vulnerable patients very seriously.

If you have concerns that anyone you know is in danger of abuse please feel free to discuss this with and member of clinical staff. For further advice on how to take your concerns further please see the following link that will take you to the Bristol City Council website. It details Bristol’s policy on protecting vulnerable adults and gives some pointers as to which agency you should share your concerns with.

Alternatively, the document 'No Secrets in Bristol' provides information on vulnerable adults and their protection.
