Local protocols update

 

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a collective term for procedures which include the removal of part or all of the external female genitalia for cultural or other non-therapeutic reasons. The practice is medically unnecessary, extremely painful and has serious health consequences, both at the time when the mutilation is carried out and in later life. The procedure is typically performed on girls aged between 4 and 13, but in some cases it is performed on new-born infants or on young women before marriage or pregnancy.

The Leeds multi-agency workflow for managing concerns regarding Female Genital Mutilation for under 18 year olds has been updated (Dec 2019) and can be found here. Further information regarding FGM can be found on the LSCB Website.
