Safeguarding

Under the terms of the Care Act, there is a responsibility for providers and commissioners to enable children and adults to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect.

 

There is extensive guidance and numerous resources to support organisations, but with so much to manage from both the provider and commissioners’ perspectives this can lead to a huge bureaucratic exercise to keep on top of.

 

With notable instances generating national interest, and huge penalties for organisations that don’t meet their obligations to keep people safe, there is considerable pressure to show that they comply with the requirements.

QUIQSOLUTIONS PAC and QUIQCARE are ideally suited to provide your comprehensive safeguarding assurance framework.

 

With solutions such as the SAS assurance tool for CCGs and Local Authorities and the Safer Practice Framework, we have ready-made tools for instant deployment across all locations and service types.

Introducing SAS (Safeguarding Assurance Scorecard)

 

SAS was developed in conjunction with the Adults and Child Safeguarding teams at NHS Kernow CCG for use by NHS Trusts and other providers in the region. 

 

Covering 57 Key Lines of Enquiry (KLOEs) across 14 key areas adult and child safeguarding including Section 11, The Children Act and the 6 C’s of Safeguarding, it has been designed for providers, contractors and commissioning bodies themselves to self-assess and evidence compliance against national safeguarding requirements.

 

It gives a real-time view for all parties involved, with the ability for commissioners and regulators to read and review evidence and to manage action plans to embed quality improvement.

Performance Monitoring

To be completely assured, you need to be aware that key performance indicators are being recorded and any worrying trends easily identified and acted upon.

SAS includes monthly, quarterly and annual reporting as well as on-demand feedback and reporting on any new areas of concern.

 

Configurable dashboards provide real-time views giving you control and visibility to ensure you are on top of your safeguarding obligations at a local and regional level.
