20.4.20 RCGP safeguarding advice
Following on from the RCGP safeguarding advice sent to every GP in the country, the PCSF and NNNGP, in collaboration with the RCGP adolescent working group, have put together a resource for every GP practice safeguarding lead to have, disseminate within their own practices and to use for the benefit of their own vulnerable patient cohorts.
In this ever changing unprecedented situation we all find ourselves in, safeguarding our patients is becoming even more challenging and the aim of this circulation is to provide both support and a resource for each and every practice to have and to use. The letter to each Practice safeguarding lead gives some tips to support their ongoing safeguarding role and function and the appendices are additional templates / resources that they might consider sending, posting, mailing, putting on social media to reach out to the vulnerable groups in each and every practice.
– families with young children
– vulnerable children at risk
