4 1.0 Introduction Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust may arrange visits by celebrities and VIPs that may involve access to a range of services. These visitors will play a role in promoting our services, enhancing patients experience and motivating staff. In the context of the Savile Recommendations, the Trust recognises the need to ensure the protection of vulnerable adults and children from any forms of potential or actual assault, abuse or psychological grooming. The Savile recommendations came about through lessons learnt as a result of a 2012 investigation into the allegations that Savile committed sexual abuses on hospitals' premises. The Trust aims to support and accommodate VIP/celebrity visitors whenever possible, whilst recognising a responsibility to protect the safety, security, privacy and dignity of patients, families and staff. The Trust also has a requirement to ensure any visits do not have a detrimental effect on the running of clinical services. Practical measures are needed to organise and manage external visits safely and minimise disruption to patients, visitors and staff. 2.0 Purpose The purpose of this policy is to ensure there is no risk to the safety and security of patients and staff arising from visits to the Trust by celebrities, VIPs and other official visitors. The policy will set out a standard approach to organise and manage such visits. 3.0 Objectives The principle objectives of this policy are to: Ensure there is no risk to the safety and security of patients and staff arising from visits to the Trust Ensure that processes are in place to manage approved visitors to the Trust Ensure staff behave in a way which is consistent with the values of the Trust Protect the reputation of the Trust Protect the confidentiality of our staff and patients and approved visitors 4.0 Process 4.1 Pre Visit All requests from outside of the Trust for an approved visit must be made to Marketing and Communications Team. Any director and/or clinical lead, ward or department arranging a visit must also first liaise with Marketing and Communications Team before approving the visit. Marketing and Communications Team will check with the clinical service(s) that will be visited to ensure they feel the visit is appropriate and would not affect the smooth running of the ward or service. Version 1.0 May

5 A central register of VIP/celebrity visits is held by Marketing and Communications and they are responsible for logging the details of the visit (see Appendix 1). A member of the team will then alert a relevant member of the Executive Team who will be responsible for approving the visit. Where possible the Trust would wish to ensure that one or more of the Executive Team are present at the visit. Supervision of visitors can be delegated to clinical teams if appropriate, with a recommendation that at least one person is responsible for supervision and chaperone. The designated Trust representative(s) will be agreed and informed of their role. For some people who use our services, VIP/celebrity visitors to the Trust may be threatening or confusing. Therefore a chaperone, who is trusted by the patients, should be considered as they may help the patients and the visitor through the process avoiding undue distress. The Trust has a responsibility for protecting and promoting privacy, dignity and respect. When details are confirmed patients and staff must be informed of the visit in advance; patients must be given the opportunity to choose not to interact with the guest. Consent must also be obtained for any photographs that may be taken. Other pre-arrangements to be made by Marketing and Communications Team include: Alerting Security to the visit Ensuring the area is clean and tidy Sorting out parking arrangements Briefing the visiting VIP/celebrity regarding our infection control procedures Drafting a programme Conducting a risk assessment (together with Local Security Management Specialist) Arrange media activity (if appropriate) Internally communicate the visit 4.2 Arrival on Trust Premises Upon arrival any approved official visitor will be met by the designated Trust representative. Approved visitors should be met at a main reception and escorted to the pre-arranged area where the visit will take place. The designated chaperone must ensure that the VIP/celebrity has Trust authority for the visit to occur and has means of personal identification such as photographic identification card, driving licence or passport. If a VIP/celebrity attends without notice, and is not on a private visit to see and relative or friend who is a patient, Marketing and Communications Team must be informed and arrangements will be made to accompany them. The visitor should be held in the reception until a member of Marketing and Communications Team arrives (or Trust representative designated by Marketing and Communications Team). Any unexpected visits that occur out of hours should be reported to the Senior Manager and Executive Director on Call. It will be the responsibility of the Senior Manager on Call to determine the appropriateness of the visit going ahead and to ensure that arrangements for accompanying are made. Version 1.0 May

6 4.3 During Visit The vast majority of VIP/celebrity visits to the Trust are one-off events, which means that standard safeguarding arrangements such as disclosure and barring service (DBS) checks may not be appropriate, therefore the approved visitor(s) must be accompanied by a Trust representative at all times. The Trust representative should remain with the VIP/celebrity visitor throughout the visit until they are escorted from the building. If it is necessary for another representative to take over, this fact must be logged as part of the formal record of the visit. During the visit the chaperone will ensure that an approved programme and security arrangements are adhered to. All VIP/celebrity visitors must also adhere to the appropriate ward protocols, including infection control, as directed by the clinical lead. VIP/celebrity visitors who will have more than one visit or an ongoing relationship with the Trust which results in multiple visits will have to undergo appropriate safeguarding checks. Human Resources Department will need to be contacted who will initiate and co-ordinate the appropriate checks. Only after appropriate checks have been made may VIPs/celebrities be left unaccompanied in public areas. This will be subject to the terms of a signed agreement relevant to the circumstances Staff Behaviour During approved visits staff are reminded that as employees they are representatives of the Trust and must therefore behave appropriately at all times. Staff should continue in their roles as normal while supporting delivery of the visit where necessary, treating all visitors respectfully at all times. Staff are expected to respect confidentiality of visitors as well as patients and colleagues. This includes obtaining appropriate consent for all images, still and moving, for use in all media, including social media, to protect patient, staff and approved visitor identity. Client information in any format must not normally be disclosed outside of the care team without the consent of the client (NHS Code of Confidentiality). The chaperone should explain this to the VIP/celebrity and remind them that they may be exposed to confidential conversations, which they have a duty not to disclose Breaches of Policy The chaperone must take responsibility for ensuring the VIP/celebrity adheres to Trust Policies and procedures at all times during the visit. They must adequately prepare the guest for the visit (for example, explaining how to keep themselves and patients and service users safe) and challenge them if their behaviour is unusual or unacceptable. Any incidence of inappropriate behaviour or breach of Policy should be escalated immediately to their line manager. Line managers should seek to resolve the issue informally before escalating to Human Resources for further support if required. If the breach in policy could affect the reputation of the Trust Marketing and Communications Team must be informed. If there is a breach of policy by the chaperone this should be formally investigated through the Trust s risk management and clinical governance arrangements and treated as a safeguarding concern. Version 1.0 May

8 5.0 Procedures connected to this Policy There are no procedures connected to this policy. 6.0 Links to Relevant Legislation Equality Act 2010 Equality Act came into force on 1 October 2010 and brought together over 116 separate pieces of legislation into one single Act to provide a legal framework to protect the rights of individuals and advance equality of opportunity for all. The Act simplifies, strengthens and harmonizes the current legislation to provide a new discrimination law which protects individuals from unfair treatment and promotes a fair and more equal society. Data Protection Act 1998 Data Protection Act came into force in March 2001, replacing the 1984 Act, to control the way information is handled and to give legal rights to people who have information stored about them. It sets out strict rules for people who use or store data about living people and gives rights to those people whose data has been collected. The law applies to data held on computers or any sort of storage system, including paper records. On 6 April 2010, the Information Commissioner s Office was given new powers to issue monetary penalties requiring organisations to pay up to 500,000 for serious breaches of the Data Protection Act. 6.1 Links to Relevant National Standards CQC Regulation 10: Respect and Dignity The intention of this regulation is to make sure that people using the service are treated with respect and dignity at all times while they are receiving care and treatment. To meet this regulation, providers must make sure that they provide care and treatment in a way that ensures people's dignity and treats them with respect at all times. This includes making sure that people have privacy when they need and want it, treating them as equals and providing any support they might need to be autonomous, independent and involved in their local community. Providers must have due regard to the protected characteristics as defined in the Equality Act CQC Regulation 13: Safeguarding Service Users from Abuse and Improper Treatment The intention of this regulation is to safeguard people who use services from suffering any form of abuse or improper treatment while receiving care and treatment. Improper treatment includes discrimination or unlawful restraint, which includes inappropriate deprivation of liberty under the terms of the Mental Capacity Act To meet the requirements of this regulation, providers must have a zero tolerance approach to abuse, unlawful discrimination and restraint. This includes: neglect subjecting people to degrading treatment unnecessary or disproportionate restraint deprivation of liberty Version 1.0 May

9 Providers must have robust procedures and processes to prevent people using the service from being abused by staff or other people they may have contact with when using the service, including visitors. Abuse and improper treatment includes care or treatment that is degrading for people and care or treatment that significantly disregards their needs or that involves inappropriate recourse to restraint. For these purposes, 'restraint' includes the use or threat of force, and physical, chemical or mechanical methods of restricting liberty to overcome a person's resistance to the treatment in question. Where any form of abuse is suspected, occurs, is discovered, or reported by a third party, the provider must take appropriate action without delay. The action they must take includes investigation and/or referral to the appropriate body. This applies whether the third party reporting an occurrence is internal or external to the provider. Themes and lessons learnt from NHS investigations into matters relating to Jimmy Savile 2015 This report summarises the findings of the reports of the NHS Savile investigations. It describes and considers the themes and issues that emerge from those findings and the further evidence gathered. It identifies lessons to be drawn by the NHS as a whole from the Savile affair and makes relevant recommendations. 6.2 Links to other key policy/s Safeguarding Adults at Risk Policy Black Country Partnership Foundation Trust has a duty to safeguard adults from abuse. The Purpose of this policy is to provide guidance for staff to assist them in identifying adults at risk and recognising abuse. The Policy applies to all staff employed by the Trust including students and volunteers and will provide information regarding their duties and responsibilities in relation to responding to any concerns. Child Protection Policy The policy sets out Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust standards and expectations in respect of safeguarding children. The purpose of this Policy is to ensure that the interests and safety of children within the Trust are recognised by all staff and that as a result, these children are protected at all times. It provides guidance for staff on how to reach a decision regarding the appropriateness of such visits so that they have a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities. Infection Control Assurance Policy The aim of the policy is to: Ensure that robust arrangements for the prevention and control of infection are in place within the Trust Ensure that infection prevention and control is embedded at all levels of the organisation from the Board to the Ward Ensure Standard operating procedures and policies for effective infection prevention and control are in place (See Manual of Infection Control Standard Operating Procedures) Dignity and Respect Policy The purpose of this policy is to identify best practice for maintaining a culture of dignity and respect for patients, carers, staff and members of the public in Version 1.0 May
