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

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. The provider was meeting this standard.

User experience

We spoke with people using the service about this outcome and they confirmed that they felt safe at the location and would raise a concern if they had one.

Other evidence

Staff confirmed that they knew what to do if a safeguarding concern was raised and that they had had training in safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. There was a link with the local authority social services team if needed and safeguarding policies and procedures were available.

All the patients who participated in a clinical trial had capacity - they must give informed consent to the trial themselves. All patients were aged over 18.
