It is the expectation for key partners to attend each meeting to reflect all services who may contribute to improving outcomes for vulnerable/complex residents or those who are at risk. If any members/partners are unable to attend, they will need to ensure another colleague from their agency is able to attend in their absence.
It is advised that you speak to your manager/safeguarding lead from your own organisation before deciding to refer into the panel as per your organisations safeguarding guidance practices. The Complex Case Panel does not replace or negate the need to inform appropriate agencies when issues are identified particularly in cases relating to immediate risk, criminal activity, vulnerable adults and children. In such circumstances the police and Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub, GP, Crisis Team or (MASH) should be the initial point of contact.
