Doctors and the diagnosis of abuse

Another interesting resource on this topic is this article by Dr Newberger from Massachussets & another one she co-wrote with Jane Snyder in which she discusses professional consensus or lack of it on what constitutes evidence of abuse with reference to research which shows that doctors tend to take a less serious view of possible signs of abuse.

On a related subject, the RCPCH has declined to pass a motion of no confidence in the GMC but has said 'the College continues to have grave concerns over the current GMC procedures in child protection.' according to the Press Association .
