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.

Kelly Harnett is the Practice Safeguarding Lead 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 Lauren Andrews or one of our safeguarding officers: Daisy Bambrick, Kelly Harnett or Tiffany Redding.

What Our Patients Say About Us


  • I have always had excellent care at this wonderful dental practice. My dentist and her nurse put me at ease. The measures they have put in place to make the practice covid secure are very thorough and reassuring.

  • Very caring and attentive Dentist practice from the dentists, nurses, hygienists and reception staff. Mark and his nurse have been brilliant this year. Firstly when I had to have a tooth removed which turned out as an easy painless procedure and then replacing a crown. Both times the Covid security was spot on. Highly recommend.
