24:14 Campaign to stop wrongful allegations of child abuse and missed child abuse

24:14 Campaign to stop wrongful allegations of child abuse and missed child abuse Responsible department: Department Of Health We, would like the Government to introduce 24:14 - a nationwide protocol for all hospitals to help doctors differentiate between child abuse and non-abuse and ensure that all babies/children where there is suspicion of abuse are seen by Paediatric specialists within 24 hours of admission and reviewed up to 14 days later, for a clearer medical picture. 24:14 would help 70,000 children affected by abuse and misdiagnosis of abuse each year and Reduce £1 billion the UK spends annually dealing with the aftermath of child abuse rather than its prevention **Source: National Commission of Enquiry into the prevention of child abuse 1996
