A Guide for Healthcare Staff in NHS Lothian: Domestic Abuse Toolkit

This guide is aimed mainly at all healthcare staff in NHS Lothian but may be useful for other disciplines.

It suggests practical approaches for health workers to respond to women who have experienced domestic abuse and men who perpetrate it. It takes as its starting point Responding to Domestic Abuse, Guidelines for Health Care Workers in NHS Scotland issued by the Scottish Executive in 2003 and is consistent with the NHS Lothian Domestic Abuse Strategy, 2004 which aims to 'ensure that health workers in NHS Lothian respond appropriately to women experiencing domestic abuse'.

Produced by NHS Lothian 2007 and based on original edition by South West Local Health Partnership 2005
