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 reviewed information given to us by the provider.

We spoke to the relevant Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

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

When we visited Alderley Edge Medical Practice we were concerned that whilst staff had undertaken training in the safeguarding of children this had not included safeguarding arrangements for adults. “Safeguarding” means taking steps to make sure that people who use services do not suffer abuse and responding properly if there are any allegations or suspicions of abuse.

The provider sent us an action plan informing us that safeguarding training in respect of adults had been undertaken for staff since our inspection. We confirmed this with the local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) which provides this training for medical practices.
