What systems can be set up in primary care to recognise child abuse? What action should be taken? Who should be contacted and at what stage? This book guides the reader towards the correct procedures when alerted to a child abuse or neglect case, and provides practical 'what to do and why' advice. It takes a unique approach in looking at child protection from the perspective of primary care and outlining the different professional roles in its management. Contributions and case reviews from a range of experts, including those involved in police work, nursing and social work, bring an extra dimension to this complex subject. General practitioners and members of the primary care team will find this book an essential guide to working together effectively.
