People should be protected from abuse and staff should respect their human rights (outcome 7)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are protected from abuse, or the risk of abuse, and their human rights are respected and upheld.

How this check was done

We carried out a visit on 29 August 2013, talked with staff and reviewed information given to us by the provider.

We reviewed the provider's policies, record systems and 2012 survey of people using the service.

Our judgement

People who use the service were protected from the risk of abuse, because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening.

Reasons for our judgement

People who use the service were protected from the risk of abuse because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse. The service was provided for people aged over 18 years. The provider recognised the duty of care to younger people who may try to use the service.

The Anytime Medical Limited doctors were on the General Medical Council’s register and were aware of safeguarding issues. People completed a medical history form at every consultation and this was reviewed by a doctor so that if there were signs of abuse this would be identified and acted upon.

Staff understood the need to contact the local authority if they suspected that a person using the service was at risk of abuse. There was a whistleblowing policy which staff were made aware of at induction.
