Richard Crompton presented a report on the findings of the recent safeguarding adult reviews and to summarise Wiltshire Safeguarding Adults Board (WSAB) activity in 2018 and plans for 2019.

 

Matters raised during the presentation and discussion included: the outcome of two Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SAR); the multi-agency recommendations that arose from the reviews; broader learning from the statutory reviews and the WSAB Three-Year Strategy.

 

In response to an issue raised by the Chairman it was noted there has since been a restructure in how the Wiltshire Council team in Adult C’s case audit and administer patients’ payments.

In response to an issue raised by the Board it was noted that to learn from these situations the recommendations will now be filtered through individual agencies and services and via the WSAB itself. The SAB will undertake quality assurance work as part of an annual auditing process to ensure that protocols are implemented; with their use tested and recorded.

 

It was also noted that there is potential for further formal collaboration between blue light services around similar issues and that there needs to be appropriate means of ongoing liaison at a high level for these discussions.
