Modern Slavery Statement
Central Surgery is a General Practice serving the population of Surbiton and Tolworth. Our purpose is to provide high-quality care to our patients, combining the best of modern medicine with the traditional role of the family doctor.
We understand the need to mitigate modern slavery risks related to our operations and put in place measures to ensure no slavery or human trafficking in our practices or supply chains.
This statement is in accordance with Part 6 (Section 54) of the Modern Slavery Act (2005) and covers the period of the financial year 2021-22.
The practice is a partnership run by Dr. Philip Moore, Dr. Jonathan Edwards and Dr. Nassif Mansour. We have 42 employees based in our practices working for the benefit of our patients.
We operate from Surbiton Health Centre, Ewell Rd, Surbiton KT6 6EZ.
Our management team provides line management support to staff.
The Practice Partners and Practice Manager provide the leadership and governance for services undertaken at the practice.
Supply Chain and Contracts
Suppliers used by the practice have signed up to abide by the principles of The Modern Slavery Act 2015. Contracts with the local council to provide public health services to our patients require the practice to provide evidence of engagement with the Act.
The practice continues to work with local partners who do not make specific reference to the Act in their contracts to ensure that they take steps on the practice’s behalf to guard against modern slavery, human trafficking, forced and bonded labour, and labour rights violations in their supply chains.
The practice provides a full induction programme to all staff, including specific training around safeguarding. We work within a healthcare environment and expect all our staff to live out the practice’s values in their interactions at work.
GPs and the practice staff play an essential role in recognition of victims of modern slavery. The practice provides specific training and practical guidance for practice staff.
