The Hall Practice Safeguarding Statement

At The Hall Practice, the health, safety and well-being of every patient is our top priority and we expect all staff to share this commitment to safeguarding our patients. 


We listen to our patients, relatives and carers and take seriously what they tell us. All practice staff are trained in Child and Adult Safeguarding, and are made aware of who they should talk to if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of and risk of harm or neglect, and are required to report these to the Practice Safeguarding Lead or directly to the local safeguarding team where appropriate. 


The procedures which we follow have been laid down by the Buckinghamshire Area Safeguarding Team and the practice has adopted policies in line with this for the safety of all. On rare occasions our concern about a vulnerable child or adult may mean that we have to consult other agencies. We will ensure that all concerns are discussed with parent/carers of a child or the adult patient first, before any referrals are made, unless we believe that such a move may be contrary to an individual’s welfare. 


The Practice Safeguarding Lead is Dr Katherine Yeomans. The Deputy Practice Safeguarding Lead is Dr Nicola Turner.   


If you are concerned about the safety of a child or an adult, or are concerned about the actions of a person working with children and vulnerable adults, you can email the practice on or you can contact the relevant safeguarding team as listed below.
