Safeguarding Adults Reviews

A Safeguarding Adults Review is a process for all partner agencies to identify the lessons that can be learned from particularly complex or serious safeguarding adults cases, where an adult in vulnerable circumstances has died or been seriously injured and abuse or neglect has been suspected. As a result of a detailed review, the Panel recommends changes to improve practice and services in the light of these lessons.
