Safeguarding Adult Reviews
Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board commissioned two SAR's in 2017 and these are published below:
At the time of their deaths both Miss T and Mr. Q were in contact with and / or known to a number of local services in Buckinghamshire. Therefore, the Safeguarding Adults Board was committed to ensuring the reviews establish whether there are lessons that need to be learnt in order to improve practice and better support people in Buckinghamshire who were seen to be self-neglecting themselves and their environment.
As a Board we decided to investigate both cases separately, employing two different independent authors and safeguarding adult review panels in order to ensure that we were able to understand the circumstances of the two cases. The recommendations of the two independent reports were accepted and two action plans are now being implemented to put in place improvements. There is some shared learning from both cases which the Board and partner agencies have taken on board to raise awareness of self-neglect and ensure improvements are in place.
The Safeguarding Adults Review Subgroup is currently monitoring progress against a multi-agency action plan devised following the reviews and will formally report to the Board.
