Consensus statement between Policing, NHS and Social Care

NHS England has supported the launch of a joint consensus statement between policing, health and social care organisations.

It commits partners to working together to use our shared capabilities and resources more effectively to improve people’s health and wellbeing, prevent crime and protect the most vulnerable people.  An action plan is now being developed to progress the commitments of the statement, which include identifying and supporting vulnerable people and their families; improving trust, knowledge sharing, best practice and training across the system; and working with partners to commission and deliver preventative services in response to assessments of threat, harm, risk and vulnerability.

Statement from the Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board

 

Safeguarding Adult Review – Mr C

 

The report into the findings of the Mr C Safeguarding Adult Review is published today. Robert Templeton, the independent chair of the Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board has provided the following message:

 

“At its meeting on 12th December, the Board considered the findings of the Safeguarding Adult Review regarding the case of Mr C as well as the Thematic Review of Learning from Safeguarding Adult Reviews related to Learning Disability and Physical Health Care, and the series of recommendations for how the agencies involved in providing support could work better together in the future.

 

Mr C had complex health and care needs and was receiving support from a number of different agencies. This report identifies learning which agencies can use for future improvement. Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board is committed to working alongside commissioners and care providers to implement the report’s recommendations.  The Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board wish to express their deepest condolences to Mr C’s family for their loss.”

Note:

The Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board is a multi agency partnership which commissions Safeguarding Adult Reviews in a very small number of cases where an adult with care and support needs has died or has been seriously injured, in order to identify lessons to improve future practice and partnership working.
