  • CONTEST is the national counter terrorism strategy
  • PREVENT is the work stream of the strategy to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism

Prevent is the multi-agency set of arrangements aimed at preventing individuals and groups from engaging in violent extremism. Prevent is not aimed at suppressing freedom of thought and expression.

Healthcare workers will be the key to the success of Prevent.  In your work, you may notice unusual changes in the behaviour of patients and/or colleagues that are sufficient to cause concern.  If you have any concerns that a vulnerable individual is being exploited by people involved in violent extremism you can raise these concerns to your practice/organisation Safeguarding Lead.

Reporting Concerns
