July NICE Guidance

The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence has published new guidance for the month of July.

There is one clinical guideline that impacts on primary care. The when to suspect child maltreatment guideline (PDF) provides an extensive list of alerting features in children and young people (under 18 years) that could indicate:

  • physical, sexual and emotional abuse
  • neglect
  • fabricated or induced illness

The guidance does not cover risk factors, training of healthcare professionals or child protection procedures.

Action: Clinicians who see children and young people should consider this guideline to be required reading.
