Mayfield Clinic Safeguarding Statement 2021/22
At the Mayfield Clinic, we’re committed to creating a safe and rewarding environment for all of our people to work and for patients to be seen and treated. This means we have a robust safeguarding policy to ensure everyone is treated properly, and a whistle blowing service so people can raise any concerns they have confidentially.
Some of our staff carry out roles that require them to work with people who are considered to be at higher risk of harm, including children and vulnerable adults. We carry out a disclosure and barring service (DBS) check of criminal records for all health professionals and all staff are required to complete comprehensive safeguarding training.
We have a zero tolerance approach to breaches of our safeguarding policies and thoroughly investigate all alleged breaches. We regularly review our safeguarding policy, which aims to improve the knowledge and understanding of all members of our team, irrespective of their position, about safeguarding at the Mayfield Clinic.
To ensure we are continually maintaining the highest standards of safeguarding, we monitor guidance from Government, the local Children and Adults Safeguarding Boards and professional registered bodies on procedures and protocols for safeguarding.
