Safeguarding adult reviews

Reviews are not enquiries into why an adult dies or who is culpable. These are matters for the Coroner’s Court, Criminal Courts and employment procedures as appropriate.

Reviews are not disciplinary proceedings and should therefore be conducted in a manner which facilitates learning and appropriate arrangements must be made for support of those staff involved.

The purpose of a review is not to reinvestigate or to apportion blame, it is to:

  • Establish whether there are lessons to be learned from the case in which local professionals and agencies work together to safeguard adults at risk.
  • Identify what those lessons are, how they will be acted upon and what is expected to change as a result within a given timescale; and as a result to improve practice.
  • Inform and improve local inter-agency working.
  • Review the effectiveness of procedures (both multi agency and those of individual organisations) and make recommendations for improvement.
  • To prepare or commission an overview report which brings together and analyses the findings of the various reports from agencies in order to identify the learning points and make recommendations for future action.
