Safeguarding Adult Reviews Privacy Notice

Last updated: Wednesday, 8 August 2018
Please note: the following notice provides additional privacy information to the Rochdale Borough Council privacy notice.

The Local Safeguarding Adults Board (a multi-agency partnership) may be required to undertake a Safeguarding Adult Review when an adult dies or is seriously harmed. The investigation will take place if harm is caused as a result of abuse or neglect and there is a concern that agencies could have worked together more effectively to protect the adult. This is a requirement under the Care Act 2014 and formal processes are in place in order to carry out such reviews.
