You are not, any of you, my mother: what happened to the safeguarding power of entry?
The Journal of Adult Protection
Article publication date: 4 February 2014
This paper aims to consider the recent consultation on a new safeguarding power of entry and seeks to provide a critique of the government's conclusions in that regard.
The paper analyses the report of the consultation exercise and sets it against those of earlier, comparable ones.
The government's conclusions were supported by only a minority of respondents. A majority of respondents, and an overwhelming majority of health and social care professionals, came to a very different conclusion.
This is believed to be the first time the government's conclusions have been analysed in this way or placed in their present context.
