Childminder | Childminders look after children in their home while their parents are at work or study. They provide general care for children. They spend significant amounts of time with children, therefore can note changes to a child’s well-being.They can operate without any professional training but have to be registered. They do not provide other professional services besides looking after children. However, they have the duty to report any concerns of abuse they may suspect.In VC’s case, the childminder noted small cuts on VC’s fingers and raised with Kouao(auntie). She together with her children were further concerned by VC’s subsequent injuries and on the advice of a French teacher, took VC to hospital (Central Middx) |

They also do not investigate criminal allegations of abuse which is done by child protection Police officers. Healthcare staff do not also concern themselves with other social needs such as those provided by Childminders or other Social groups like ChurchesIn VC’s case the healthcare institutions failed in their duty to protect children from abuse. Initially the GP practice nurse had the initial chance to spot the abuse, had she done a physical examination of VC. The hospitals involved failed in the assessments of VC’s injuries. At Central Middx hospital, Dr Beynon suspected the injuries were non-accidental and referred the case to Dr Ajayi-Obe (paediatric registrar) who then did a detailed report and relevant authorities were informed. However, the child protection consultant diagnosed VC with scabies and discharged her. At North Middx hospital doctors suspected the abuse but still discharged her. |
Police Child Protection Teams | Police child protection teams investigate allegations of abuse of children under the age of 18. This can be physical, sexual, emotional or neglecting. They also investigate historical cases of abuse even after the child has turned 18.Unlike Social workers, Child Protection Police Officers, largely investigate criminal allegations of abuse. They do not concern themselves with...
