Modern Slavery Statement
MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT – VIDA CLINICS
We, VIDA Clinics, are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chain.
We are a provider of private health care, aesthetics, and wellness services. VIDA Clinics is the trading name of DATI Medical Limited which is a company registered in England and Wales. We have over 11 employees who consist of qualified doctors, healthcare professionals, and administrators. We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission and based in the United Kingdom only.
Our business operates out of four locations across the north west of England which are as follows;
VIDA Woodside - 1 Pacific Road, Wirral, CH41 1LJ
VIDA South Road - 18 South Road, Waterloo, Liverpool, L22 5PQ
VIDA Birchwood - Venturi Cardiology, 720 Birchwood Boulevard, Birchwood, WA3 7QY
VIDA Chester - Total Fitness, 53 Liverpool Road, Chester, CH2 1AQ
Our supply chains
Our supply chains include several suppliers of medicinal products who are based in the United Kingdom and Europe. We also enter into agreements with reputable recruitment agencies who assist in the identification and hiring of suitably qualified medical professionals.
Our policies on slavery and human trafficking
We have appropriate policies in place that underpin our commitment to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. This includes a whistleblowing policy so that, if slavery or trafficking was ever suspected, this can be handled appropriately. We continuously review and update all our policies.
Due diligence processes and supplier adherence to our values
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values, they must demonstrate a commitment to tackling slavery and human trafficking within their own organisations. At the very least, we expect all of our suppliers to publish a modern slavery statement, even where they are not legally obliged to do so, which we review before entering into any commercial agreement.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff when they first join VIDA Clinics as part of their induction. All members of staff must also complete an annual refresher course so that they are well trained to both identify and respond appropriately where they suspect slavery or human trafficking to be taking place.
Our effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking
Whilst we are not aware of any allegation that slavery and human trafficking has been taking place within any part of our business or supply chains, we will keep our effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking under continuous review during the next financial year and beyond. In circumstances where we have identified a need to change our approach to combating slavery and human trafficking then we will update this statement accordingly.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31st March 2024. It was approved by the board on 2nd January 2024.
