The significant case review process in Scotland
Any agency can ask for a case to be considered for review by a CPC but a family cannot ask for a review. Concerns raised by families should be addressed through relevant agencies' normal complaints procedures. CPCs are responsible for establishing the local arrangements needed to consider a potential significant case for review. This may include devolving some areas of responsibility to specific groups to take forward. Further information on family involvement in SCRs is available at http://www.baspcan.org.uk/report.php.
The review process in Scotland is summarised in Figure 1 and explained throughout this guidance.
