At Ridgmount Practice we place very great importance on the issue of Safeguarding.

This refers to protecting people’s health, wellbeing and human rights and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect.

In particular we place a strong focus on safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults.
