In an update for GPs, the NCL safeguarding team has highlighted the need to be extra vigilant at a time when vulnerable adults and children may be isolated and not visible to professionals. Please continue to refer any safeguarding concerns to your local children and adult social care/domestic violence and abuse agencies, and consult your local safeguarding team for advice as required.
