Safeguarding

Ensuring a safe service is received by Service Users - NRS Safe Working Practices:

The Care Standards Act 2000 places a duty on organisations and individuals to safeguard and promote the wellbeing of service users; adults and children.

NRS Healthcare takes this responsibility extremely seriously and is committed to practices that protect vulnerable persons and children from harm and treat them with dignity and respect.

NRS ensures that any vulnerable person and children receiving services from us can access them in safety without fear of abuse.

At the same time we protect our employees from the risk of unfounded allegations.
