Adult protection significant case reviews: interim framework

Framework to support a consistent approach to conducting adult protection significant case reviews and improve the dissemination and application of learning both locally and nationally. This framework is for all partners.

Who can request a Significant Case Review?

Any agency with an interest in an adult's wellbeing and safety can request that a case be considered for review by an Adult Protection Committee where they consider the criteria for a review is met. It should be noted that concerns raised by families and addressed through the relevant agencies' normal complaints procedure may also be a trigger for a Significant Case Review where the agency considers the criteria for a review is met. The agency addressing the complaint would refer the circumstances to the Adult Protection Committee for their consideration at the earliest opportunity.
