Current Safeguarding Concerns

Current Safeguarding Concerns

Following the Orchid View Serious Case Review (published in June 2014), West Sussex Safeguarding Adults Board developed a threshold for informing the public about the significant safeguarding concerns and a means of making the public aware that they can access this information.

Where there are significant safeguarding concerns about a care home or care service, new referrals by the County Council may be suspended and a County Council suspension notice issued.

You can also find information about people’s views and experiences of some of these services on Healthwatch West Sussex.

This web page has been created to enable significant safeguarding concerns relating to a care home/provider in West Sussex to be shared with the public.
