The Royal College of Nursing have published a guide for nurses and midwifes about spotting and reporting signs of modern slavery.
There advice published in a new guide ask them to trust and act on your professional instinct that something is not quite right. It is usually a combination of an inconsistent story and a pattern of symptoms that may cause you to suspect trafficking.
If you have any concerns about a child, young person or adult take immediate action to ask further questions and get additional information and support.
Please download the guide and to find out more about abuse, how to recognise it and specialist organisations that can help and support. Go to London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Safeguarding Adults Board pages.
