The IRIS programme – Identification and Referral to Improve Safety – provides training, support and a referral programme to primary healthcare staff to ensure that victims and survivors can find their way out of violence and abuse.

The NHS spends more time dealing with the impact of violence against women and children than almost any other agency or service.

Doctors and healthcare staff are often the first port of call for women experiencing violence.

Despite this, most healthcare professionals receive no training specifically about domestic violence and abuse.

As a result, GPs and healthcare workers often fail to identify patients in their care who are experiencing abuse or do not know what action to take if a patient reveals they are experiencing domestic violence.

Aurora was selected in 2012 to deliver training with our Southampton partners on domestic violence intervention and prevention.

 

The nationally recognised IRIS programme will significantly enhance the service offered to victims and survivors of abuse: improving the quality of care for patients experiencing abuse and ensuring they receive the help and support they need.

The IRIS programme has been nationally recognised to improve the referral of patients to specialist domestic violence and abuse services like Aurora, and we are delighted to have been chosen to deliver this vital service in Southampton.
