The purpose of this paper is to consider the process of undertaking a Safeguarding Adult Review (SAR) from the perspective of an Independent Author and from an agency participating in one and to stimulate a debate on both the process and the culture of Safeguarding Adults Boards that commission them.
The author drew solely on his own experience as an Independent Author and member of an SAR Panel.
The finding of this paper is that Safeguarding Adults Board vary in their commissioning process for SARs and their expectations of the role of Independent Author and the SAR Panel.
The paper is drawn from the experience of the author and is therefore subjective.
There are implications for the role of Independent Authors and the process by which SARs are commissioned and managed.
The author is not aware of similar consideration of the experience of an Independent Author or of an agency participating in a SAR.
