Thematic Safeguarding Adult Review Report Published January 2021
Media statement, on behalf of the MK Together Partnership: This review was commissioned to understand an emerging pattern of self-neglect in older adult men. All partners have made significant progress towards improving the level of support available. This includes a comprehensive pathway for professionals to follow in cases of self-neglect, and additional training on the Mental Capacity Act 2005. Colleagues across the police, health and adult social care will continue to strive for the highest standards of safeguarding support.
‘Denise’ Safeguarding Adult Review Report published January 2021
Denise’s death in September 2019 was a sad loss of life. Colleagues across the police, health and adult social care have worked closely together to identify all possible learning from this case. The recommendations in the report have been implemented, including practice changes within assessment and greater strategic oversight of cases. Much of this work happened immediately in the months following this death.
The Safeguarding Partners will continue to support and challenge agencies to deliver the highest standards of safeguarding support
Published 23 November 2020, on behalf of the MK Together Safeguarding Partners:
In Milton Keynes we have made significant changes to the way agencies work together and share information to support people with complex needs. In parallel, Milton Keynes Council launched an Integrated Autism Service last year which covers assessment, diagnosis and post-diagnostic support for people aged 16 plus.
Helping local people to get the mental health and social care support they need must remain a priority. This tragic death underlines the importance of strong collaboration between the NHS, social care, housing providers, and the police. We will continue to put the learnings from this important case into practice to ensure that adults with autism are fully supported. We will do everything possible to reduce the risk of this happening again.
