Adult Services Procedure 12/11

Assessment and provision of care for vulnerable adults and adults with multiple needs

This procedure gives guidance for all teams dealing with adults who have complex needs. It clarifies how care should be given even if it is unclear which care group should care for them. The guidance reminds teams that all have duties under social care legislation. It provides timeframes and arrangements for dispute resolution and managers decisions. It also provides for good practice where young people in transition move into Adult Services Teams.
