Quality Assurance

A core function of the SAB is to gain assurance that local safeguarding arrangements are in place and that partners are acting to help and protect adults in its area.  One way we do this is by scrutinising data in the Performance and Quality sub-committee and raising any issues of concern to the SAB. 


Another way we do this is through the audit of safeguarding arrangements. Hillingdon SAB have developed an audit tool, using the London Chairs of Safeguarding Adults Board network and NHS England’s toolkit as template to provide all organisations in the Borough with a consistent framework to assess, monitor and/or improve their safeguarding adults at risk arrangements.  In turn this will support Hillingdon SAB in ensuring effective safeguarding practice across the Borough.

Multi-Agency Safeguarding Audit Schedule & Learning Events

Hillingdon SAB is currently in the process of finalising its Multi-Agency Audit Program for 2017-18. A Multi-Agency Audit Questionnaire has been sent to all board members to ascertain the scope of their internal auditing programs, with a view to identifying suitable areas of practice to review as a safeguarding partnership. Further details as to planned multi-agency audits will be available from November 2017.  

Hillingdon SAB – in conjunction with Hillingdon LSCB and Hillingdon CCG – will be holding a Learning Event in December 2017 with regards to Sepsis, a serious and potentially fatal medical condition that can affect any person of any age at any time. Please check back in the coming weeks for full details of this Learning Event and how to book onto it.
