Prevent forms one part of the Government's overall counter terrorism strategy, 'CONTEST', which is led by the Home Office.  Prevent aims to deter individuals from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.  The Prevent policy aims at front line staff and is designed to help make staff aware of their role in preventing vulnerable people being exploited for terrorist purposes.

The Prevent strategy recognises that NHS staff may come into contact with individuals (both children and adults) who are vulnerable to radicalisation.  Staff must have an awareness of the risk of radicalisation, identify those individuals who may be vulnerable and intervene to prevent them from supporting terrorism or becoming terrorists themselves.

All concerns relating to Prevent must be escalated as a matter of urgency to the Single Point of Contact for Prevent or to the Trustwide Safeguarding Team.
