Child Safeguarding

Covid-19 update

In an update for GPs, the NCL safeguarding team has highlighted the need to be extra vigilant at a time when vulnerable adults and children may be isolated and not visible to professionals. Please continue to refer any safeguarding concerns to your local Children and Adult Social Care/Domestic Violence and Abuse agencies, and consult your local Clinical Commissioning Group team for advice as required.


NSPCC helpline: NSPCC is still here for children, and its helpline service is open every day with free support for anyone who’s worried about a child: over the phone, via email or through an online form.

t: 0808 800 5000 (8am-10pm Mon-Fri/9am-6pm weekends)

The Royal College of General Practitioners has issued advice on Covid-19 and safeguarding.
