The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme being introduced by the Met in partnership with other agencies which encourages carers to compile useful information which could be used in the event of a vulnerable person going missing.

Here at Bluebird Care (Cheshire East) we are supporters of The Herbert Protocol.
The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme being introduced by the Met in partnership with other agencies which encourages carers to compile useful information which could be used in the event of a vulnerable person going missing.
Carers, family members and friends can complete in advance, a form recording all vital details, such as medication required, mobile numbers, places previously located, a photograph etc.  In the event of your family member or friend going missing, the form can be easily handed to the police to reduce the time taken in gathering this information.
The Herbert Protocol initiative is named after George Herbert, a War veteran of the Normandy landings, who lived with dementia.
If you think this could help you or your family in any way, please contact Jaqlyn Mellor, Deputy Manager, on 01270 617081.
