Rethinking “Did Not Attend” For Children Who Miss Appointments

Posted on 27/03/2017

Nottingham Safeguarding Children Board have released an animated video to raise awareness that recording a child’s non-attendance at a clinic or appointment may be masking issues of neglect, instead the failure to see the child should be recorded as ‘Was Not Brought’.

The Somerset Safeguarding Children Board has requested this video is shared across the health community.
