The monitoring form (see resource link below) is for Honour based violence, Forced Marriage and Female Genital Mutilation. No action is taken on receipt of these forms, because they are not referral forms. Should staff identify any concerns they should report formally to the police (particularly when considering mandatory reporting of FGM, or refer, when appropriate, to support services or social care. The monitoring form can be completed and sent to to assist in data collection to understand the prevalence of these issues in the county.

In response to Sir Robert Francis’ Freedom to Speak Up report and his recommendation to review primary care separately, NHS England has published specific guidance for colleagues in general practice, optometry, community pharmacies and dental practices. This follows a consultation with staff working in primary care. As of 1 April 2016, primary care staff can raise concerns directly with NHS England. The guidance sets out who can raise a concern, the process for raising a concern, how the concern will be investigated and what will be done with the findings of the investigation.
