New guidelines have been drafted which would help doctors in saving children from the menace of drug abuse. As per the new guidelines, doctors would have the responsibility of taking immediate action if a child is believed to be under the threat of abuse or whose care is being neglected by the parents.
The new guidelines affirm, “It is vital that all doctors have the confidence to act if they believe that a child or young person may be being abused or neglected”. Every day, doctors come in contact with a number of adult patients.
If a doctor feels that a certain person can be a threat to children then the doctor can take immediate action by taking the help of child protection trusts. The Chief Executive of General Medical Council, Niall Dickson, said that protecting children from abuse is a complex job.
The new guidelines have been welcomed by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. It is hoped that the initiative thus taken would help in saving children from abuse. As per the new guidelines, the doctors would look for symptoms like disturbed personal life for getting a clue of whether or not the person can affect or hurt a child.
