Frequency: Quarterly

The Counter Terrorism & Security Act 2015 places a legal duty on NHS trusts and foundation trusts to consider the Prevent strategy when delivering their services. The key elements of this duty are further outlined in the revised Prevent duty guidance which refers to the Department of Health's building partnerships staying safe guidance document  as the way health organisations should deliver Prevent.

The data/information subject to the data submission process is collected from all NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts. This provides the necessary assurance that all organisations are compliant with the Prevent duty.

The aim of the data collection is to demonstrate how NHS providers are delivering the key elements of the duty. These include identified Prevent leads, delivery of awareness training, the level of referrals made and the engagement with relevant partnership forums that coordinate the Prevent strategy at local and regional levels.
