Local Commissioning of Serious Case Reviews

Local Commissioning of Serious Case Reviews

Support for Independent Chairs of Safeguarding Children Boards and Serious Case Review/Serious Incident Notification Panels/Sub Groups

This document, commissioned by the East of England Children’s Sector-Led Improvement Board, aims to support the LSCB independent chair and other partners to make sound judgements when a serious incident is notified. The overall aim being to ensure there is a robust and consistent process to guide decision making in line with the criteria found in Working Together (DfE 2015) (Chapter 4) and provide some clarity around the commissioning process. It is not intended to replace local arrangements but to support LSCB’s in providing some tools to assist with the process. The recently published ADCS (2015) on the role of serious case reviews provides complementary guidance.
