Supply Chain and Contracts
Suppliers used by the practice have signed up to abiding by the principles of The Modern Slavery Act 2015. Contracts with the local council to provide public health services to our patients require the practice to provide evidence of engagement with the Act.
The practice continues to work with local partners who do not make specific reference to the Act in their contracts to ensure that they take steps on the practice’s behalf to guard against modern slavery, human trafficking, forced and bonded labour and labour rights violations in their supply chains.
The practice provides a full induction programme to all staff, including specific training around safeguarding. We work within a healthcare environment and expect all our staff to live out the values of the practice in their interactions at work.
GPs and the practice staff play an important role in the recognition of victims of modern slavery. The practice provides specific training and practical guidance for practice staff. We make use of the RCGP safeguarding toolkits for both adults and children.
