This section contains links to local and national Safeguarding Adult Reviews, Serious Case Reviews, reports and inquiries (both historic and current) and aims to support the dissemination of the learning arising from these across Hampshire, and in doing so promote evidence based practice.
HSAB Safeguarding Adult Reviews
From April 2015, the Care Act introduced a new statutory duty to undertake safeguarding adult reviews (Section 44). This section contains safeguarding adult reviews undertaken by the HSAB and provides a summary of each case together with professional learning points.
HSAB Serious Case Reviews
This section contains pre-Care Act 2014 serious case reviews, reports and inquiries undertaken by the HSAB.
National Safeguarding Adult Review Repository
SCIE and RiPfA have developed a repository of Safeguarding Adults Review (SAR) reports with an aim to maximise the value of individual SARs through two different kinds of resource. One will support the quality of individual SARs and the other will enable more widespread and effective use of the learning from SARs. This will support a virtuous circle whereby as the quality of individual SARs goes up, it also supports their being used to better effect.
Information on the SAR repository can be found here:
Serious Case Reviews
This section contains links to pre-Care Act 2014 national serious case reviews, reports and inquiries (both historic and current) and aims to support the dissemination of the learning arising from these across Hampshire and in doing so promote evidence based practice.
HSAB Multi Agency Reviews and Workshops
Where referrals to the HSAB do not meet the criteria for a Safeguarding Adult Review, but there is an opportunity for lessons to be learnt for multiple agencies, the Board can commission Multi Agency Reflective Workshops, Multi Agency Partnership Reviews or Discretionary Reviews.
This section provides the final report of these Reviews.
This section provides links to a wide range of national reports highlighting learning and evidence based practice to inform policy and practice development across a range of adult social care issues.
Learning from Tragedies
In 2017, 5,507 deaths in England were directly attributable to alcohol, an increase of 11% since 2006, while hospital admissions caused primarily by alcohol were 17% higher over the same period. The total number of hospital admissions for which alcohol was a factor was close to one million, or about 7% of all hospital admissions. Serious cuts to alcohol treatment services are making things worse, with many people in desperate need of support falling through the gaps.
Vulnerable adults are particularly at risk. They can be deeply affected by alcohol, whether as a heavy drinker themselves or as someone who is negatively affected by another person’s drinking.
This report covers an in-depth analysis of 11 Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs) published in England in 2017 in which alcohol was identified as being a significant factor in the person’s life and/or death.
Coroner Prevention of Future Deaths Reports
Paragraph 7 of Schedule 5, Coroners and Justice Act 2009, provides coroners with the duty to make reports to a person, organisation, local authority or government department or agency where the coroner believes that action should be taken to prevent future deaths. This section provides a link all Prevent Future Deaths reports, formerly known as Rule 43 Reports made since 25 July 2013.
