Describe the indicators of domestic abuse in an adult, child or young person. along with a pathway for responding to a concern
Adults, children and young people who are accessing healthcare services within GG&C Children's services
All healthcare staff working with GG&C Children's services
Notes to accompany the pathway are listed below.
Given the prevalence statistics this pathway assumes the victim is female however, it can also be used for men experiencing domestic abuse.
Be aware that these lists are not exhaustive & that there may be other causes, also that some women & children show no signs or indicators.
If you cannot see the woman alone do not ask about domestic abuse as this could put her at greater risk.
