Children & young people in hospital – advice for practitioners
The MSB has adopted the relevant chapters of the GMSP procedures to provide guidance to practitioners and assist them to increase awareness of the need for effective planning when it is identified that an adult may present a risk to a hospitalised child or other children who may be cared for within the vicinity.
The relevant GMSP procedures include:
- Hospital discharge guidelines for vulnerable children can be found in chapter 4.23 of the GMSP procedures at greatermanchesterscb.proceduresonline.com
- Guidance for children visiting psychiatric wards and special hospitals can be found in chapter 4.1 of the GMSP procedures at greatermanchesterscb.proceduresonline.com
