The Department of Health has issued new and updated guidance to support NHS organisations that are developing or reviewing safeguarding policies and procedures around female genital mutilation (FGM).

The documents provide practical help to health professionals from all sectors, particularly designated and named safeguarding leads, and local safeguarding children board members.

They have been developed in partnership with health and social care professionals, and professional bodies, and are based on existing best practice within the NHS.

All organisations must ensure that their approach to safeguarding against FGM is multi-agency and multi-disciplinary. They should work with partners in social services and the police.

'Female Genital Mutilation - Risk and Safeguarding: Guidance for professionals' has been developed to provide information about the specific issues frequently encountered when dealing with FGM. In addition, it provides a framework that organisations may wish to adopt to support professionals in the ongoing consideration of risks pertaining to FGM.

The 'FGM Safeguarding Pathway' provides guidance to clinicians and other professionals when assessing whether a patient may be at risk of FGM.
