Who undertakes Safeguarding Adults Reviews?
Safeguarding Adults Reviews involve people from the various organisations who were involved with the vulnerable adult. There will be a Chair who is independent and someone responsible for writing the final report, known as the Overview Report Author. At the end of the process the final report is produced which is agreed by the Bromley Safeguarding Adults Board.
How long will the review take?
The review should be completed within 6 months of the decision being taken to start the review. Sometimes this timescale needs to be extended.
How are families involved?
Families and close friends and carers, where relevant and appropriate, will be given the opportunity to share their views and comment on the services the adult at risk received. They will be contacted to offer to arrange a meeting by those undertaking the review. If wanted a named person will be available to answer questions, update the family on progress and support them on any specific concerns. When the review is complete there will be a follow on meeting offered to outline the findings and recommendations of the review. Families will also be provided with a copy of the executive summary.
