The health minister Dr Dan Poulter has defended new measures that will see all children who visit accident and emergency (A&E) departments logged in a database. He said:
Up until now, it has been hard for frontline healthcare professionals to know if a child is already listed as being at risk or if children have been repeatedly seen in different emergency departments or urgent care centres with suspicious injuries or complaints, which may indicate abuse.
Providing instant access to that information means vulnerable and abused children will be identified much more quickly - which will save lives.
