1. If you identify that your client is at risk this must be indicated in your appointment handover submission via: www.therapycentreservices.com/handover
2. These handovers are picked up by the team, and where risk is indicated at 3 will be escalated to your account manager / safeguarding lead. We will make contact with you to discuss the risk where indicated at level 3 or above. A safeguarding form must be completed for any clients at Risk level 3 or above.
3. If you have any safeguarding or concerns around client risk, these must be discussed with us immediately after the end of the session, both by phoning (or messaging if out of office hours) the main number 07895 796857 and by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure a member of the team can pick this up.
4. If you have any clients who are risk level 2 or above we would recommend the Safety Plan is introduced with your client. If your client is at risk level 3 or above you must complete this Safety Plan with your client during session.
