NSPCC: Hospital online system to spot abuse 'is first step'

An online system to identify children who may be in danger of abuse or neglect is to be created for use in hospitals across England.

Child protection charity the NSPCC has welcomed the move, but says more training is also needed.

The organisation's Lisa Harker said: "It is people who keep children safe from abuse and neglect, not systems and databases."
