September 10, 2012

Source: NHS GG&C Health Inequalities

Human Trafficking Guidance: Human trafficking is a very real problem in the west of Scotland with gangs or individuals tricking men and women to enter the country with false promises of work, only to end up as modern day slaves, or coercing them into prostitution. New guidance from NHSGGC aims to help and encourage frontline health staff to spot the signs of victims of human trafficking. The guidance gives clear advice to health workers who have concerns that a patient may have been trafficked about what steps should be taken and which agencies, including the police, should be contacted.
