Safeguarding in virtual consultations in primary care

Bath, Swindon and Wiltshire (BSW) CCG have developed a document which gives advice to all GPs about the consideration of safeguarding in all virtual consultations, including both phone and video calls.

This document has also been reviewed and endorsed by the National Network of Named GPs for Safeguarding (NNNGP) which is the body commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement to support primary care safeguarding. Reading and applying this document, then reflecting upon consultations where this document has been helpful, can be written up as a safeguarding e-portfolio entry, and will count towards safeguarding CPD.
