How are we supporting?
We make no restrictions on registering anyone as a patient. We aim to treat all patients equally and on the basis of need.
The Practice maintains a Safeguarding Register. Patients on the register are discussed each month and where necessary in other multi-disciplinary team meetings taking place at the Practice. The lead for Adult Safeguarding is Dr John Frain.
The Practice holds an Annual Safeguarding Afternoon for all members of staff. This includes training to alert staff to recognised individuals who may be at risk.
We maintain a register of patients with Learning Disabilities and aim to invite patients on the register for an annual review with one of the GPs. You are welcome to request such a review by the GP at any time.
We are able to arrange an interpreter to be present with you at your appointment if necessary. Please let the Reception staff know at the time you book your appointment.
