The safeguarding adults review group (or SARG as it is often known) meets every month and is attended by senior representatives from health, Norfolk Constabulary and adult social care, as well as the NSAB board manager, chairperson and administrator. The group also has legal representation from Nplaw. During meetings, the group will consider any SAR referrals that have been received and also discuss any ongoing SARs, multi-agency and single agency reviews. It's an opportunity for representatives to share and discuss any evidence that their agency has on the particular cases that have been referred. Conversation and debate can be quite lively as the details of the cases are discussed. Sometimes it can take several months in order to receive all of the information required from agencies to enable the group to reach a decision on whether a Safeguarding Adult Review should be carried out.
All referrals and investigations are captured and actions from them are recorded on a composite action plan. The group will meet approximately three times a year to discuss recommendations and actions from completed SARs to ensure that learning from them is rolled out.
