NHS England has provided e-learning modules from e-Learning for Health on safeguarding topics.

Below is a link to a series of talks in the form of podcasts taken from the UK Safeguarding 2014 meeting.

Panel discussions and debates are also featured. The complete two-day meeting is available as individual lecture podcasts and accessed by clicking on the 'agenda' section via the link below:
