GP Practice Safeguarding Lead resources
The Primary Care Safeguarding Forum (PCSF) and National Network of Named GPs(NNNGP) in collaboration with the Royal College of GPs (RCGP) adolescent working group, have put together a resource for every GP practice safeguarding lead to have, to disseminate within their own practices and to use for the benefit of their own vulnerable patients.
In this ever-changing and unprecedented situation, safeguarding patients is becoming even more challenging and the aim of providing these resources is to provide practical support.
The letter to each Practice safeguarding lead gives some tips to support their ongoing safeguarding role and function and the appendices provide additional templates / resources that may be sent or put on social media to reach out to the vulnerable groups in each practice.
