The GMC’s new guidance for every doctor in the UK to help them protect children from abuse or neglect comes into effect this week.
Protecting children and young people: the responsibilities of all doctors underlines the duty on all doctors to act if they are concerned that a child or young person is at risk.
The guidance is not just for doctors who treat children. Doctors treating adult patients must also consider whether the patient poses a risk to children or young people.
All doctors should have received a copy of the new guidance in the post but an electronic version can be found at www.gmc-uk.org/childprotection along with learning materials, including case studies, and a decision-making flowchart.
We very much hope that you will find this new guidance useful. We would be grateful if you could bring it to the attention of your colleagues.
