Here at the practice we have two GP’s who are our safeguarding lead GP’s, Dr E Baines – Adult Safeguarding and Dr S Butler – Children’s Safeguarding. You can of course speak to anyone here at the practice if you have any concerns regarding someone you know.
You can also report any concerns directly to the appropriate authorities and there are links and further information below for both Adult and Children Safeguarding Teams
