New advice to DOCTORS about Child Abuse

Post by PeterMac on 03.09.12 8:16

New guidance to help doctors protect children from abuse and neglect has been published by a medical watchdog.

The advice from the General Medical Council (GMC) is designed to give doctors confidence to act when they need to and makes clear where they can turn for support.

The guidance, Protecting Children And Young People: The Responsibilities Of All Doctors, was produced following a two-year working group chaired by a senior family judge after hearing evidence from a range of child protection experts.

It states that if doctors are treating an adult patient, they must consider whether the patient poses a risk to children or young people. For which read PARENT

Doctors must be able to identify risk factors in a patient's environment that might raise concerns about abuse or neglect. Like unlocked patio doors

They must also listen to parents and children, recognise parents' understanding of their children and keep an open mind about the possible cause of an injury or other sign that may indicate abuse or neglect. Open Mind. Say no more.

The GMC has also produced a guide for parents to help them understand what they can expect from their doctor when child protection concerns are raised.

It comes as a survey by website Netmums, which the GMC commissioned, found that 94% of parents agreed that doctors had a duty to find out if a child was at risk - even when they were only treating adult patients.

Some 1,500 people responded to the survey that looked at their experiences of when their child was taken ill or injured and how they thought doctors should act if they suspected abuse or neglect. Ring the press, wipe your mobile phone records, and keep silent vigil overnight, is the recommended practice.

GMC chief executive Niall Dickson said: "Child protection is a difficult area of practice, complicated by uncertainty and often very emotionally challenging.

"Parents and carers need to have full confidence that if there are any issues raised about the safety of their child, their doctor will take the right course of action. That would be a good start.

"Part and parcel of this is making sure that doctors communicate properly with both parents and children to convey any concerns they may have.

"Our new guidance will help guide doctors toward making the correct decisions in this challenging but essential area of work."

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
