SAFEGUARDING

Southdowns Physiotherapy is committed to safeguarding all vulnerable patients who access our services. We work together with our partner organisations to safeguard vulnerable adults and children from all forms of abuse, neglect and exploitation.

In line with Care Quality Commission (CQC), Fundamental Standards 2015, people who use services will be protected from abuse, or the risk of abuse, and their human rights respected and upheld.

All clinical staff will have undertaken the appropriate training specific to safeguarding both vulnerable adults and children.

We treat all our patients with respect and ensure their right to privacy, dignity, and confidentiality is appropriately balanced with safeguarding and promoting their safety, independence, and well-being.
