‘Lack of understanding’ over Rotherham child abuse

‘Lack of understanding’ over Rotherham child abuse

Health services in Rotherham still have a “lack of understanding” about who should be dealing with child abuse, a new report has said.

Sue McMillan, of the Care Quality Commission (CQC), said communication between different parts of the health service was a clear problem.

The Jay Report, published in 2014, found 1,400 children in the town had been abused over a 16-year period.

Ms McMillan said “there was still a lot to be done” almost a year on.

“Health services in Rotherham have responded to concerns in relation to child sexual exploitation,” but more progress was needed, said Ms McMillan, the watchdog’s deputy chief inspector.

  1. Well …this is quite understandable. What did you expect. For years the Labour Council never listened, the police ignored and you now you expect the NHS to be up to speed. I bet you that every nurse that would have complained to the police or the social services of possible signs of abuse was probably ignored.
