The PROTECT (Provider Responses, Treatment, and Care for Trafficked People)  Final Report for the Department of Health Policy Research Programme has been published. PROTECT is a mixed methods research programme on the health needs of trafficked people in England. The project aimed to develop evidence to inform the NHS response to human trafficking. It provides evidence about the healthcare needs and experiences of trafficked adults and children; documents NHS experience, knowledge and gaps about trafficked people’s healthcare needs; and will provide recommendations on the content and format of training materials to support NHS staff to identify, refer and care for trafficked people. 

The PROJECT team received feedback from several teams from across the Department of Health and Home Office, and the comments helped them to target their recommendations and to add more detail on the current policy context. The review process also led to an invitation to speak to the NHS England National Safeguarding Steering Group, where the findings were received with interest, and NHS England's Safeguarding Summit. Read the PROECT Final Report for the Department of Health Policy Research Programme (PDF 2MB).  For more details about the PROTECT programme, visit the PROTECT webpage.
