Devon Branch Meeting with a talk on safeguarding

24 Aug 2022 19:00 - 20:00



CPD hours: 1

Members in Devon are welcome to top up their CPD portfolio by joining RCN Devon branch for an online talk on safeguarding

This NHS safeguarding session will cover the current models of child and adult safeguarding, including how we might all become more trauma-informed and strength-based in our safeguarding tactics and interventions with children and adults at risk of neglect, abuse, exploitation and violence.

For CPD purposes, this is a level 3 training session worth one hour.

About the speaker 

Kenny Gibson is the Deputy Director for NHS Safeguarding, overseeing several portfolios including tackling abuse, exploitation, radicalisation and violence.

He leads nationally on Contextual Safeguarding; Trauma Informed Care; Prevent in the NHS and Child Protection Information System.

Having begun his NHS career as a laundry assistant in 1980 at a mental health unit, Kenny was encouraged to become a nursing assistant and then trained as a nurse and then a midwife.

Kenny has held various operational, management and strategic posts in both community and public health but always with nursing at the heart of these roles. 

Prior to becoming the Head of Safeguarding for NHS England, Kenny was the Head of Public Health Commissioning for London.

Kenny is passionate about connecting with and listening to patients, carers and health practitioners in order to improve services and experiences within the NHS, as well as to empower people about their own wellbeing.

Kenny was awarded an MBE in the 2022 New Year’s Honours for services to leadership in health care.
