COVID-19 and Safeguarding Children, Adults & Families:

COVID-19 is an extremely challenging situation for primary care. We are significantly changing the way we work  and facing staff shortages. Our colleagues in partner agencies will be facing the same challenges. During this time, we need to continue to work together to safeguard our most vulnerable patients. 

The role of primary care in safeguarding at this time is to recognise when children/adults/families are struggling or potentially suffering abuse or neglect, signpost to resources which can help and refer to other agencies as appropriate. This may include making safeguarding referrals through normal pathways.
