Healthwatch Report published
People’s experiences of adult safeguarding services - A review of services in Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and the UK commissioned by the CIoS SAB.
"Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Safeguarding Adults Board were delighted to work with Healthwatch Cornwall to find out about local people’s experiences of adult safeguarding. The report describes many people’s experiences, some very good and others not good enough - these highlight how things need to change to improve the experience of safeguarding processes . It is really important that vulnerable people feel fully involved in their safeguarding experience and that they are kept at the centre of the care. The Board have accepted the report’s recommendations in full and will now be working on the improvements identified in the report. I would like to thank all the individuals who contributed their time and safeguarding experiences across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. We have an excellent report that gives us very clear messages about what to improve and why. There will be a follow up piece of work later this year to check that services have improved and that the experience of safeguarding is consistently personal to individuals".
