Modern Slavery Act 2015
Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Introduction from the Infinity Dental & Beauty Spa
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Our Group's slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 2022.

Our policies on slavery and human trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
Anti-slavery Policy - In light of the obligation to report on measures to ensure that all parts of our business and self-employed staff are slavery-free. We have put in place a designated Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy which is reviewed annually to assess their effectiveness in identifying and tackling modern slavery issues. This policy applies to all employees and persons working for us in any capacity.
Our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy demonstrate our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our clinics.
Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk, we OUTLINE DUE DILIGENCE PROCEDURES OR OTHER RELEVANT STEPS TAKEN.
We have in place systems to:
Identify and assess potential risk areas in our employed and self-employed staff.
Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our employed and self-employed staff.
Monitor potential risk areas in our employed and self-employed staff.
Staff adherence to our values
We have zero tolerance for slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our clinics and contractors comply with our values we have in place a clinic compliance programme.
We encourage all our workers, customers and other business partners to report any concerns related to the direct activities, or the clinic chains of the organisation. This includes any circumstances that may give rise to an enhanced risk of slavery of human trafficking. Our whistleblowing procedure is designed to make it easy for workers to make disclosures, without fear of retaliation. We have had no reports regarding Anti-slavery and Human trafficking during the period covered by this statement.
The organisation makes clear to employees and staff the actions and behaviour expected of them when representing the organisation. Infinity strives to maintain the highest standards of employee conduct and ethical behaviour.
Training & Awareness
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. We also require our business partners to provide training to their staff and suppliers and providers.
Our effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking
We ensure all relevant staff are made aware of the basic principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and know how to flag any concerns to the business.
In addition, we have a bi-annual employee appraisal system to make sure that the salary our staff receives is not below the minimum wage and we conduct an externally facilitated annual review to bring insights on ways to we can tackle slavery and human trafficking.
Following a review of the effectiveness of the steps we have taken to ensure there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any of our clinics, we intend to take on the following steps. We have a dedicated compliance team, which consists of directors that are involved in processes to:
Review our staffing levels due to diligence processes;
Review our recruitment and admission processes;
Ensuring that training is updated and all relevant staff continue to be made aware of the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and its relevance to their role.
The compliance team is led by Dr Catherine Greenhalgh
