The National GBV Team was created to support NHS Boards meet their responsibilities in relation to CEL_41, as a service provider, employer and partner agency. They promote a response to gender-based violence across the NHS that is safe, person-centred and effective for those who have previous or current experience of abuse. We additionally have responsibility for monitoring progress across the NHS in Scotland and are working with Boards to develop effective recording and reporting systems.
The National GBV Team have undertaken a research programme focusing on identification and responses to domestic abuse in health care services. Specifically, studies will consider the effectiveness of computer assisted routine enquiry and developing an intervention for community nurses.
