Pharmacy guide

Pharmacists have a professional, moral and social duty to protect vulnerable adults. In addition to a legal duty to protect children and young people from abuse and neglect.

You also have a duty to work with other organisations and authorities to safeguard vulnerable adults, children and young people.

This guide provides practical information to help you protect vulnerable adults, children and young people.

There’s information on identifying and recognising signs of abuse or neglect, what to do if abuse or neglect is suspected, and signposting to further information and advice.
