Escalation Policy

Escalation Policy

Previous case reviews have highlighted the need for staff working in the multi-agency environment of safeguarding adults, to be able to properly and effectively raise particular concerns with colleagues and managers in partner agencies.   There is an expectation that in most circumstances a lack of consensus between professionals will be resolved quickly and informally with the interests of the individual being central to decision making.

In order to allow a professional approach to areas of any potential contention, which cannot be resolved informally, the Policy, Practice and Procedure subgroup of the board have produced a formal escalation procedure to provide a timely and collaborative approach to reaching informed outcomes.

It is anticipated that the need to invoke this policy will be infrequent, and only in exceptional circumstances.
