ABSTRACT
The article presents a study conducted by the members of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) on the increasing complaints child protection against paediatricians. The study was participated by 72 consultant paediatricians who experienced child protection complaints between 1999 and 2003, and were then subjected to qualitative interview. It was found out that paediatricians are aware of the risk of a complaint especially when they refer the case to social services and that they know and assume the risk of these complaints when carrying out responsibilities on child protection.
