Forensic Medical Examination and adults at risk of harm – in conversation with Dr Elisabeth Alton

In this ‘in conversation’ with, I talk to Dr Elisabeth Alton about the pilot forensic service to support safeguarding adults that she has led on, designed to provide 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.

Details of ‘Adult A’s’ case that Elisabeth talks about at the start of the video can be found here (and we can confirm that Adult A’s family are aware of, and happy with the fact, that we talk about his case in this video).

The evaluation of the pilot we discuss towards the end is here.
