Meeting this standard

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

How this check was done

Our judgement

The provider was meeting this standard.

Patients 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.

User experience

Patients we spoke with said that they felt safe at the practice

Other evidence

Patients were seen by the dentist in the presence of the dental nurse. Children, and patients who wish to, were accompanied by a chaperone.

We found that all staff had completed training in how to safeguard children and adults from the risks of harm and abuse. Staff had also completed training in the provisions of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. Staff were aware of the types abuse they might meet and the action to take should they have concerns about a patient’s safety.

We found that all staff had a Criminal Record Bureau check to ensure their suitability to work in the health sector.
