News in biref: GPs called to front line of domestic abuse

GPs have been called on to take the lead in the fight to tackle domestic abuse. The BMA warned last week that the UK is in the grip of an 'unspoken' epidemic of domestic abuse with 350,000 cases reported each year. It is urging GPs to call the police if they suspect domestic violence. Visit http://www.bma.org.uk/ap.nsf/Content/domesticabuse.
