New Humber Project - Forensic Medicals in Adults at Risk of Harm

Publication date: August 2022

A new project covering the Humber region provides an examination service for adults at risk of harm who may have suffered a non-accidental injury as a result of physical abuse or neglect.

This novel project commenced at the beginning of May in North Lincolnshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire. The inter-policy was approved by both Safeguarding Adult Boards and forms part of the multi-agency policies for safeguarding.

Who would benefit from a forensic medical? 
Any adult who satisfies the definition of an adult at risk of harm, (18 or over, has care and support needs, is suffering from abuse or neglect and as a result of their care needs is unable to protect themselves) and has suffered what may potentially be a non-accidental injury.

Further details of the service including: indications of Non-Accidental Injury; how to refer for an examination; and supporting information can be found in the document Forensic Medicals in Adults at Risk of Harm Information for Primary Care Clinical Staff
