GPs on alert for children at risk from cyber trolling

GPs are being urged to be on the alert for signs of cyber-bullying as part of new child safeguarding guidance launched this week.

Advice to help GPs identify and support children and young people at risk of child trafficking and radicalisation is also included in the new toolkit published by the Royal College of General Practitioners and the NSPCC.

It reflects the changing landscape of general practice, with GPs on the frontline of increasingly complex health and societal challenges.
