Safeguarding Adults Reviews

County Hall

The Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board will undertake a Safeguarding Adults Review when the circumstances set out in the Care Act 2014 guidance are met:

  • An adult has died as a result of abuse or neglect and there is a concern that partners could have worked together more effectively to protect the adult.
  • An adult has experienced serious harm as a result of abuse or neglect and there is a concern that partner agencies could have worked more effectively to protect the adult.

The purpose of a Review is to promote effective learning and improvement action to prevent future deaths or serious harm occurring again. This may be where a case can provide useful insights into the way organisations are working together to prevent and reduce the abuse and neglect of adults.

Anyone can request a SAR, the procedure for requesting, decision making and completing a SAR.
