Disability – Working Together
The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 provides for disabled
people to have the legal right to be treated equal to everybody else. It also
gives disabled people rights in the way they receive or access goods, services
This means that all service providers have to ensure that
their business is accessible for people with disabilities.
The clinic ensures that:
It is our policy not to treat disabled people less favourably because of their disability.
We have tried to consider a full range of facilities required for disabled people and it is imperative that if further requirements are needed or any comments /
suggestions you wish to make to the clinic will be
Paediatric patients (children)
The practice recognises the rights of children as laid down by the Children Act 1989, the principles of which are as follows:
The welfare of the child is paramount
Cleanliness means more than just maintaining a clean and safe environment, it makes a statement to patients and visitors about the attitudes of all the clinic’s staff / practitioners.
Patients rightly expect everything to be clean, not just the floors, surfaces, furniture but the clinical equipment used in their treatment.
Cleanliness is a collective and an individual responsibility and the clinic strives to ensure that all practitioners adhere to its cross infection policy.
All treatment areas have full facilities of hand sanitising gel and centre pull towel rolls.
Good practice measure – the essence of good cleaning is not only that things look clean, but that they are technically clean.
All patients being treated have a right to assume that the environment is one in which hazards are minimised.
The clinic has a spillage/ hazard box – this is used for any body fluid that may occur and requires to be attended to using the clinic’s policy and guidance.
The clinic also has safe disposal sharp containers which are used to dispose of any discarded needles / syringes that the clinic Dr may have used.
The clinic has an Infection Control Policy which all the practitioners are aware of and adhere to.
It is our policy that workplace accidents will be reported in our accident book.
These are kept at the reception station.
Apart from it being a legal requirement, this enables us to investigate the more serious accidents to ensure that they do not re-occur.
Legal Position – The law on accident reporting is covered by the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995.
These set down requirements for reporting certain types of accidents to the enforcement authorities.
All accidents will be recorded as soon after the event as possible.
This may be done by the injured person.
If a patient or visitor has an accident then the practice manager is responsible for ensuring that it is
recorded, unless someone is providing the treatment.
If the accident or incident is trivial, it will be investigated by the practice manager and measures if required will be implemented to ensure this does not happen again.
Details of such accidents / incidents will later be discussed with all the practitioners.
It is our policy to ensure that appropriate first aid arrangements are in place for both staff and patients and any visitors to the clinic.
The clinic complies with the Health and Safety (first Aid) Regulations 1981.
We are required to carry out a risk assessment in order to determine what first aid facilities are required.
This is reviewed periodically.
The clinic has the recommended first aid box as well as a resuscitation box in the event of a collapse.
The leisure centre where the clinic has its premises also provides first aiders and the centre has a defibrillation unit.
Flintshire County Council agreed a No Smoking at Work Policy in January 2005 and this was implemented on 1st April 2005.
The work free premises Act (Wales) Regulation 2007 came into effect @ 06.00am 2nd April 2007.
The effect of the law meant that staff, patients, visitors will not be allowed to smoke within the business or organisation’s premises.
The clinic has enforced its policy and from 2nd April 2007 smoking is prohibited throughout the clinic with no exceptions. This applies to all staff, patients and visitors.
No Smoking Signs are on display.

If the practitioner feels that you may feel more comfortable in alternative clothing than those that you are wearing, but you do not wish to use the clinic’s
clothing, we will offer to arrange another appointment as
quickly as possible for you to enable you to be suitably attired.
It is a requirement that certain relevant information is obtained from you if you wish to receive treatment or have a consultation.
