Hsab joint working statement
HSAB Joint Working Statement:

Through the work streams ensure a review of all current policies and protocol

to ensure they are still fit for purpose.

We will develop a strategy for disseminating the protocols of joint working to

ensure they are embedded into frontline practice across all partners.

The board then needs to evaluate the impact of joint working protocols and

whether they are achieving the prescribed outcomes.

We will ensure that the views of service users and carer’s are integral. Partners

will be committed to sharing information and problem solving jointly.

As a Board we will have a joined up system for understanding and discharging

our roles and responsibilities to vulnerable adults and children in order for us to

improve outcomes, and undertake our statutory functions jointly.
