This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that
Patients2People has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking
is not taking place within our business or supply chain.
Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Patients2People
has a zero tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and
with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in
place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply
Patients2People provide a wide range of healthcare advice and provision across the UK and
Internationally. Patients2People have a very clear set of values, our overriding Value is kindness whilst
giving people choices and empowering them to be as independent as possible. Within the UK we use
only reputable suppliers and those that supply to the NHS and have passed their due diligence in
relation to the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Over the last 2 years we have been working in China to help promote improvements in healthcare.
We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and
transparent manner. These include:
- Recruitment policy. We operate a robust recruitment policy, including conducting eligibility to
work in the UK checks for all employees to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals
being forced to work against their will.
- Whistleblowing policy. We operate a whistleblowing policy so that all employees know that they
can raise concerns about how colleagues are being treated, or practices within our business or
supply chain, without fear of reprisals.
We regularly conduct training as part of our Safeguarding Training for staff so that they understand the
signs of modern slavery and what to do if they suspect that it is taking place within our supply chain or
scope of practice.
Our performance indicators
We will know the effectiveness of the steps that we are taking to ensure that slavery and/or human
trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain if:
- No reports are received from employees, the public, or law enforcement agencies to indicate
that modern slavery practices have been identified.
