The Care Act 2014 statutory guidance states that all organisations must have arrangements in place which set out clearly the processes and principles for sharing information with each other, with other professionals and with the Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB). By signing up to this agreement the relevant Signatory Organisations are recognising that working together and sharing information effectively is imperative to safeguard those that are at risk or pose a risk to themselves or another, and to prevent, detect and prosecute offences against adults at risk. This agreement formalises the processes and principles for sharing information between each other, with other professionals and with any other relevant parties.
The purpose of this document is to set out the procedure and guidance for organisations which may come across a resident of Haringey who self-neglects or hoards. It provides support to practitioners in the engagement of customers and the management of risk.

This protocol provides a framework for health and care organisations to draw on when developing guidance for staff in all sectors and agencies that may see a pressure ulcer. If the staff member is concerned that the pressure ulcer may have arisen as a result of poor practice, neglect/abuse or an act of omission, the local guidance should be clear about what steps they need to take and whether the local authority safeguarding duties are triggered.

This document represents a collaboration between the agencies on behalf of Haringey’s Safeguarding Adults Board to provide a joint Section 42 Enquiry Framework by which we work in partnership to safeguard vulnerable adults from abuse.

Haringey Safeguarding Adults Board Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards Staff Procedures and Guidance
This guidance is relevant to professionals who are with adults who may lack the capacity to make particular decisions and is in a situation where the possibility that there may be deprivation of liberty arises. The guidance will describe:

Latest developments on Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS)
In July 2018, the government published a Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill, which was passed into law in May 2019. It replaces the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) with a scheme known as the Liberty Protection Safeguards. The target date for implementation is October 2020. Prior to then, a revised MCA Code of Practice will be published, which, the sector trusts will bring clarity to some outstanding questions about how LPS will work in practice. The DoLS Procedure will be revised in line with the new LPS guidance when launched.
The aim of the MASP is to ensure that professionals working with people experiencing complex needs are able to access and offer creative problem-solving and advice. You can find the Terms of Reference and referral form for the MASP below.
