Policy Changes

Friday, June 2, 2017

The pan-Lancashire Policies and Procedures have been updated.

Please note specifically the change to guidance for 'Bruising - non mobile babies' or 'a child who is not independently mobile' which is now contained in the NICE guidance 'when to suspect Child Maltreatment' contained in chapter 1.3 of the manual - Recognition of Significant Harm.

An overview of the NICE guidance can be found here.
