My grandson and his partner noticed bruise like markings on

Customer Question

My grandson and his partner noticed bruise like markings on their 8 week old baby. They took him to the hospital, the medical staff have contacted social services and they have been instructed to hand over their daughter of 23 months. they are banned from the hospital. What should we do now? They wanted help because they are caring parents not false accusations

Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
It is very hard but the first thing to do is to try and get them to sleep tonight as it is going to be a very long week and they need to remember to eat and sleep - they wont so you have to remember fro them.
First thing tomorrow they need to find a solicitor who deals with Care cases.
They can find one on the website here

It would also be sensible for you to start considering the family history for any illnesses that could cause such bruising, and a detailed timeline of the last eight weeks
Please ask if you need more assistance
