Deborah Smith, Safeguarding Specialist
Deborah has been an osteopath since 2002, working in a variety of clinical settings. As part of a Masters in Child Health, her dissertation was to write a policy on safeguarding for osteopaths. Since then an interest in supporting osteopaths to make clinical compliance easier grew.
In 2014 she established Mint Practice producing a comprehensive folder and patient leaflets to help equip osteopaths with the information they need to easily comply with the Osteopathic Standards. She particularly enjoys teaching osteopaths on the access course to apply safeguarding learning within the context of their practice.
She believes all osteopaths should be trained in safeguarding so action will be taken where necessary to safeguard children.
