Safeguarding Discharge Planning Protocol




Safeguarding Discharge Planning Protocol: Discharge of Children and Young People from Hospital Settings.

This guidance has been developed by Swindon’s Children’s Social Care (CSC), Oxford Health NHS
Foundation Trust (CAMHS) & Great Western Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (GWH) to support
multi-agency staff to make appropriate arrangements to ensure the safe discharge and transfer
of children and young people where there are safeguarding concerns, from acute hospital
settings.

This guidance applies to children already known to have safeguarding concerns prior to
admission and children in whom a safeguarding concern arises during admission or where the
child is Looked After.


This protocol is also available from the Procedures page of this webiste.
