6th February 2017 International Day of Zero Tolerance to FGM: National Day of Action….
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) The World Health Organisation (WHO, 2010) has classified FGM as: “all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organ for non-medical reasons” Where you become aware of a case, the legislation requires you to make a report to the police force area within which the girl resides. It is recommended that you make a report orally by calling 101, the single non-emergency number. Practitioners are also required to contact the MASH on 443 2600 as this is a safeguarding issue relating to a child.
