Safeguarding refers to a process that is aimed at protecting children and adults from harm. People have a right to live in safety free from abuse or neglect. This is best assured if concerns are raised at the earliest opportunity.

Upton Surgery takes safeguarding very seriously. If you have any concerns or issues relating to safeguarding, please contact the practice.

In the Worcestershire area, health, local authority, and other organisations work together in a coordinated way to improve outcomes.
