Majority of the present health care professionals in Britain have level one and two training, but they lack level three training. The absence of level three training prevent the healthcare professionals from either identifying the child abuse or reporting it to the appropriate bodies and put procedures into place to stop it.
Lack of training and training facilities and the negligence seem to be the major reason for the mishaps in British healthcare system. Even though most of the healthcare professionals have level 1 & 2 training, at least some of the healthcare professionals have not completed the much-needed level 3 training for giving proper care to the children.
In the baby P case, the social workers failed to identify or report the child abuse even though they visited the family of baby P around 60 times. Moreover, they failed to identify the criminal history of the family also. In other words, these social workers have not given much emphasized to their profession; they did everything mechanically. Most of the healthcare professionals in Britain may not have the passion for this profession. They are engaged in working in the healthcare industry just for finding a livelihood rather than any social commitments.
The most important solution for improving the standards of child healthcare system in Britain is to make the level 3 training compulsory for all the healthcare professionals and the social workers. Most of the hospital groups in Britain at present urge only the specialized staff to go for the level three training. Plymouth Hospitals have already admitted that most of their staffs are trained in level one and two whereas only a few got the level three training.
