Female Genital Mutilation

The Safeguarding Team and Primary Care Team have worked with a senior Social Worker from Barnardos to design and create a Multi-Agency Care Pathway for Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in Hertfordshire. The Pathway contains information in relation to health implications, prevalence, the legal framework, care pathways for adult and child and a multi-agency screening tool. Launch events organised by Hertfordshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and the Hertfordshire Safeguarding Children Board (HSCB) took place in September 2017.
