We understand that the support GPs offer their patients often extends beyond narrowly defined health needs to wider welfare considerations. This is particularly important where they see those adults most at risk, either in their own homes or in a care home.
All staff are trained in recognising and acting upon any safeguarding concerns in vulnerable adults.
DR GIL RIVAS is the surgery's safeguarding lead for vulnerable adults.
