Confidentiality is defined as the principle of keeping secure information secure and secret from others, information which is given by or about an individual in the course/duration of a professional relationship.

Our clinic is committed to safeguarding. Under the 1989 and the 2004 Children Acts a child or young person is anyone under the age of 18 years. Safeguarding children is the action we take to promote the welfare of all children and protect them from harm. Child Protection refers to the activity that is undertaken to protect specific children who are suffering or at risk of suffering significant harm. The Clinic recognises that all children have a right to protection from abuse and neglect and the Clinic accepts its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children with whom staff may come into contact.
As we only treat clients 18+ we have training to safe guard vulnerable adults. A vulnerable adult is someone who is above the age of 18 and is unable to care for themselves and not able to protect themselves from harm. One of the differences with safeguarding adults is that while preventing them from risk abuse of neglect, they also need support maintaining control of their own lives.
If a risk abuse of neglect is being taken place we must contact the local police 999 or 101, or safeguarding trusted partner e.g. NSPCC.
The clinic has a strong and existing standard on hygiene and sanitation and operating in clean environments. We clean all machinery and equipment thoroughly between clients and at the end of each day.
Regular deep cleaning of the premises takes place to ensure the highest hygiene standards are maintained.
It is our priority to minimise the risk to life and to reduce injury by maintaining the physical fire safety of the Studio; to ensure that staff and visitors do not add to the fire risk and through safe evacuation of the clinic if a fire breaks out. The fire safety policy, procedures and risk assessments at the clinic are designed to help our staff and clients/visitors to respond calmly and effectively in the event that fire breaks out in the Studio.
Procedure in the Event of a Fire
In the event of a fire, safety and preservation of life will override all other considerations. The safe evacuation of all clients/visitors and staff is our priority. Buildings and property come second and no one should attempt to fight any fire at the expense of their own, or anyone else’s safety. It is the duty of all staff to study and make themselves familiar with the clinic emergency evacuation procedures. As part of the regular review of the clinic risk assessment, the clinic arrangements for ensuring fire safety will be under continual review.
Emergency Evacuation Procedures
It is the responsibility of individual members of staff to ensure the safe evacuation of all clients/visitors for whom they are responsible, to lead to the designated place of safety. If possible, doors should be closed behind. It is important for staff to be familiar with alternative escape routes in the event that the primary route is blocked. The group will assemble at the predetermined place of safety, which is the road in front of the clinic. The fire alarm system does not automatically alert the fire service. The fire service will be called by a member of staff as soon as it has been confirmed that a real fire situation exists. Nobody should re-enter the building until being given express permission to do so by the senior fire officer present. Visitors on site will be made aware of fire safety arrangements upon arrival.
