Safeguarding adult reviews are commissioned by HSAB to review the involvement of agencies and professionals associated with an adult at risk.
Safeguarding adult reviews can take place when:
• an adult in Hertfordshire dies of abuse or neglect, whether known or suspected and there is concern that partner agencies could have worked more effectively to protect the adult.
• an adult in Hertfordshire has not died, but the Board knows or suspects that the adult has experienced serious abuse or neglect.
• the Board feels it would be useful, including learning from 'near misses' and situations where the arrangements worked especially well.
