Everyone has a right to be safe regardless of who they are or their circumstance. As individuals we all have a responsibility to safeguard adults and children, to act on concerns and seek support if needed.
As a practice we strongly adhere to these principles and offer safe, timely, appropriate and holistic health care to all those in need, including vulnerable adults and children at risk of abuse or neglect.
All our staff are trained in safeguarding and we have practice policies, overseen by our named safeguarding leads for adults and children. We work closely with various statutory bodies to seek support for our patients in any safeguarding matters.
If you have concerns about abuse of an adult you can discuss this with staff at The Old School Surgery or report this directly to Care Direct on 0117 9222700 in Bristol, or South Gloucestershire Safeguarding 01454 868007 for patients in South Gloucestershire.
