Griffin Care welcomes new child protection/safeguarding guidance from GMC

Griffin Care welcomes the publication of new General Medical Council (GMC) guidelines on child protection.

The guidance, Protecting children and young people: the responsibilities of all doctors, is designed to support professionals to deal with a wide range of complex child protection issues. It instructs doctors treating adults to consider whether patients pose a risk to children or young people, in terms of both abuse and neglect.

As well as setting out doctor’s roles and responsibilities in relation to safeguarding, the guidance also includes advice on information sharing, working in partnership with other agencies, consent for child protection examinations and acting as a witness in court.

To read the guidance and view the Safeguarding Children training available visit our website : www.griffincare.co.uk. If you would like us to develop a bespoke training course to meet exact the needs of your workforce please contact us at enquiries@griffincare.co.uk, we will be happy to help
