    A loooong story short...

    Ex and I are in a custody battle.
    He's taken DS to A&E due to nappy rash.
    CAFCASS report (court social worker) says the nappy rash was so bad, the doc called child services.

    I've not heard anything from child services from over a week ago.
    There is nothing in the doctors notes about contacting child services.

    Would they not be required to have noted that they'd called?

    There is a line on the medical report: "safeguarding issues? No. Social worker? No".
    Surely if the doc had felt the need to call child services, they'd have noted safeguarding concerns?

    Any help welcomed xx

    I'd say they definitely would've made a record if they'd called child services or made any sort of referral, especially if it needed chasing up for any reason. And if there were concerns, they would've contacted you by now. My dad called the social on me and my sister and they came that night (everything was fine, he was just using it to get back at my mum *sigh*)

    It would have been noted in the notes (if it's not noted it didn't happen) and I think they would have made contact by now they have timeframes to keep to. I can't remember how long unfortunately as I previously worked in social services.
