Child sexual abuse

The Pathway for Child Sexual Abuse medicals for young people under 18 guidance has been developed to help practitioners manage concerns about possible child sexual abuse

It will not cover all possible cases as each case will be considered and discussed individually.

If the guidance is not followed, the professional must record why and tell us if a judgement was informed by best practice and acting in the best interests of the child.
