Serious Case Reviews are undertaken when a vulnerable adult dies or is seriously injured and abuse and/or neglect is known or suspected to be a factor.
The purpose of a serious case review is neither to reinvestigate nor to apportion blame, but to establish if there are lessons to be learnt to prevent such a tradegy happening again.
Each serious case review is written by an independent person who has specialist skills and knowledge. All the agencies involved contribute to the review and a group of senior managers make sure improvements are made.
Each serious case review published is about a real person and our thanks go to the families who contributed to the reviews as do our sincere condolences. Summary's of each serious case review conducted by the Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board are published below.
