Guidance to help primary care teams recognise domestic violence

Guidance to help primary care teams recognise and respond to signs of domestic violence has been published.

Responding to Domestic Abuse: Guidance for General Practices sets out principles to help staff respond “quickly and effectively”, including establishing a domestic abuse care pathway.

For example, some practices may develop an internal referral route to a practice nurse with additional domestic abuse training who will conduct a specialist assessment, the guidance said.

It was jointly developed by the Royal College of GPs, Co-ordinated Action Against Domestic Abuse, and the Identification and Referral to Improve Safety programme.
