CSE progress in Rotherham health services slammed as ‘unacceptable’ by watchdog
Progress on child sex exploitation in Rotherham is ‘unacceptable’ and ‘too slow’, says a care watchdog.
The Care Quality Commission has reviewed how effectively health services in the town are protecting children and young people from abuse.
CQC’s deputy chief inspector, Sue McMillan said: “We’re disappointed that despite the intense scrutiny on child protection in Rotherham, services with a key role in child safeguarding are unclear about their responsibilities. While progress has been made, it is too slow and more is required.
