Derbyshire Safeguarding Adults at Risk

We're waiting for David Andrews to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Derbyshire County Council,

Under the FOI Act, please could you provide the following information:

1. When a Safeguarding referral is made, is it Policy to contact the person assumed to be at risk so that:
(a) they are aware a safeguarding referral has been made
(b) they can give their 'Consent to share medical information' when you contact their GP and / or others involved in their care?
(c) they can be assessed for a full risk assessment if they choose to, providing they have mental capacity?

2. What specific questions would you be asking the person's GP and / or others involved in their care?

3. If the person's GP, for instance, does not have up to date information on their patient's mental health, is it Policy to contact others involved in the patient's care who may have up to date information?

4. What other information might you provide to the person's GP and / or others involved in their care and what measures are put into place to ensure information provided by you is not misleading, false or discredits the person assumed to be at risk? For instance, subjective opinions have the potential to cause serious harm to a person already assumed to be at risk and vulnerable.

I look forward to receiving your response within the timeline guidelines and to providing separate answers to each question asked.

Yours faithfully,

David Andrews

Dear Derbyshire County Council,

For the purpose of clarity, I am asking about a Safeguarding Referral made by a public body, and not a referral made by the 'person assumed to be at risk' family members.

Yours faithfully,

David Andrews
