In response to the Taskforce on the health aspects of violence against women and children the Department of Health is now taking this work forward.

Action Plan

This action plan sets out how the Department in partnership with others will take action by Spring 2011 to address many of the issues that came out of the Taskforce work.

It aims to lay the foundations for embedding high quality evidence based practice within the NHS in response to violence and abuse and is set around four key themes:

  • Awareness-raising
  • Workforce, education and training
  • Improving quality of services
  • Evidence and Information

Implementation group and meeting minutes

This group has been set up to oversee and monitor the implementation of the Taskforce recommendations and advise ministers on implementation. It will also work to champion the agenda within the NHS and will meet every two months.
