Whilst abduction is a rare event, it is imperative that all staff are aware of the possibility.
This policy is for all staff, particularly those working with babies, children and their mothers/carers within the Trust. It outlines the measures to be taken to ensure babies/children are kept safe whilst in our care and actions to be taken in the event that a baby/child is missing or has been taken from the Trust.
