Prevent is part of the Government’s strategy for counterterrorism (CONTEST) and seeks to reduce the risks and impact of terrorism on the UK. CONTEST focuses on all forms of terrorism. The aim of Prevent is to ensure there are preventative strategies in place across all agencies to support and divert people who may be susceptible to radicalisation before they become directly involved in any illegal activity relating to acts of violence or terrorism. Health is a key partner of the Prevent agenda and raising awareness of Prevent among frontline staff who provide healthcare is crucial.
 
GPs have a general duty to safeguard. Prevent is part of safeguarding and the professional duty to raise concerns about adults and children who may be exploited by extremists. GPs are required to demonstrate level 3 competency for Prevent, but are not mandated to achieve this through the hour-long WRAP under the current Prevent Duty. For WRAP, please contact Prevent Lead, Victoria Gray (t: 07939 974292). Level 3 e-learning for Prevent available from January 2018 from NHSE.
