When the damage has been done...

Hi, some of you may remember my post from before? I was maliciously reported to social services and accused of neglect, I initially thought it was my ex and the children's father but it has since been confirmed 100% it was my own sister! Anyway the case has been closed as social services believe it to be malicious and the allegations were proven false, but since then the damage has already been done and mud clearly sticks! I'm treated like a criminal at the school, and today I took my son to the walk in gp as he was unwell, the gp asked me why my children were under children's services (something must have clearly been flagged on the system) I explained it was closed as it was malicious though he clearly didn't believe me, I was asked if I knew who reported me to which I said yes thinking that was enough but he wanted to know who, why is this been put on my file?? It wasn't child protection and they were only making enquiries so I was told, but yet I'm being flagged on the system as someone to watch out for! How can I clear me name?!! Help

Contact SS and raise it with them

That's awful. I was reported once by my ex husband and his wife. All sorted in one phone call from social services. They also called the police on me, again unfounded (the policeman actually gave me the incident number to use in court against him!).

But it makes me so paranoid! My daughter needed to go to A and E a few months ago and it took me ages to decide to go, in case I got accused of hurting her!

So basically, yeah, ring SS

Everyone in contact with the children have a safeguarding duty towards them, this due to a famous case by which a kid died through abuse despite contact with professional because all believed the other was responsible for ensuring they were safe. GPs role in safeguarding is especially scrutinized, hence all the questions.

I'm very sorry that you had to face this when all you want to do is forget about it, but the GP only did what he was expected to do. Your name IS clear, but questions can still be asked (as they are asked each time a child is taken to A&E)
