Royal Pharmaceutical Society | Protecting children and young people

Pharmacists have a professional, legal and moral duty to protect children from abuse or neglect and to work with other organisations and authorities to safeguard children.  The purpose of this resource is to provide concise practical information to help pharmacists protect children and young people in the course of their professional practice.

It provides information in three key areas:

• Recognising signs of abuse or neglect
• What to do if abuse or neglect is suspected
• Sources of further information and advice
