Children and Adults at Risk Safeguarding Policy

The practice is committed to complying with legislation and statutory guidance to protect children and adults at risk of abuse or neglect. The practice has an effective process for identifying and responding appropriately to signs and allegations of abuse. There is also an effective process for preventing abuse before it occurs and minimising the risks of further abuse once it has occurred.

The practice has appointed Lesley Anthony and Kelly Harnett as the Practice Safeguarding Leads for children and adults.

A child is defined as a person under the age of 18. An ‘Adult at Risk’ is any adult who has needs for care and support by reason of mental or other disability, age or illness; (whether or not the L.A. is meeting any of those needs); is experiencing, or at risk of abuse or neglect; and as a result of those care and support needs is unable to protect themselves from either the risk of, or the experience of abuse or neglect. The Care Act 2014 introduced the term ‘Adult at Risk’ replacing the phrase ‘vulnerable adult’, however the two are used interchangeably within this policy and supporting documents.

All team members are trained to recognise signs of abuse in children and adults at risk. Training to take appropriate action including recording and reporting is provided at induction and at regular intervals.

Any suspicions and allegations of abuse are taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.

All team members are required to undergo appropriate DBS/PVG/Access NI checks. The practice does not employ anyone who has been barred from working with and treating children or adults at risk.

Good practice guidelines
A chaperone is always present when treating a child or vulnerable adult.
Gratuitous physical contact is never made with a patient. If a patient needs comforting, team members use discretion to ensure that any physical contact is appropriate.

Any concerns are referred to Lesley Anthony, Kelly Harnett or one of our safeguarding officers: Tiffany Redding or Daisy Bambrick.

What Our Patients Say About Us


  • Always a calm experience being seen by Lesley. I get very anxious but she puts me at ease and makes the experience much more relaxed. Reception staff are always friendly and smiley, the waiting room is accommodating. Highly recommend, especially if you have had trouble finding a dental surgery which is good for people with anxiety.

  • After spending many years with 'dentist phobia', I have to say that i have finally found a dentist who has managed to make me feel comfortable about having treatments. The receptionist staff are lovely and everybody is very friendly, warm and welcoming. Hassan is a legend and the reassuring approach from El Nashar have made my visits to the dentist, dare I say....enjoyable!!
