The Scottish Government accepts the findings of this review and is taking forward the recommendations for the Scottish Government, which are:
To clarify the relationship between the role of the convenor of an adult protection committee in respect of significant case reviews and the guidance to Chief Social Work Officers on significant case reviews, and
To clarify with the Care Inspectorate the position regarding registration of services provided under the Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013.
Following this the Scottish Government will consider whether further changes are required to the guidance that is being developed on significant case reviews in adult protection and to the code of practice for public bodies and office holders involved in adult protection.
The Scottish Government expects all the agencies involved to consider the findings of this review and to take action on the relevant recommendations.
