    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Safeguarding 30-Mar-2020

    Summary: Mr X complains on behalf of his father, Mr Y, that the Council did not properly investigate safeguarding concerns about his father. The Ombudsman will not investigate this complaint because there is a more suitable person to represent Mr Y.

  • Royal Borough of Greenwich (19 018 045)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Safeguarding 30-Mar-2020

    Summary: Mrs X complained about the Council-funded care her brother received from a domiciliary care agency, and the Council's subsequent delay in investigating the neglect he suffered. We will not consider this late complaint. While the Council's investigation was responsible for some of the time it took before Mrs X complained, it would have been reasonable for her to complain to the Ombudsman sooner and it is unlikely we could now carry out a fair investigation.

    Statement Not upheld Safeguarding 26-Mar-2020

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Safeguarding 26-Mar-2020

    Statement Not upheld Safeguarding 26-Mar-2020

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Safeguarding 24-Mar-2020

  • Kent County Council (19 004 637)

    Statement Not upheld Safeguarding 20-Mar-2020

    Summary: There is no evidence the Council failed to take proper action in response to Ms A's safeguarding alerts, or act in Mr X's best interests when he became homeless. There was a delay in applying for deputyship but that was not wholly in the Council's control.

  • Nottingham City Council (19 007 292)

    Statement Upheld Safeguarding 19-Mar-2020

    Summary: The Council correctly assessed Mrs C's adult social care needs to facilitate her discharge from hospital, considering her wishes and those of family and professionals involved. The Council followed law and government guidance. The Council failed to respond to the complaint in line with its published procedures; it will apologise, and its complaint team will ensure to follow its procedure and update complainants as required.

  • Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council (19 017 889)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Safeguarding 19-Mar-2020

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mrs B's late complaint about the discharge and support provided to her mother, Mrs C, in 2017. This is because it is unlikely any further investigation by the Ombudsman could add to the Council's response or make a finding of the kind Mrs B wants. There is no good reason for the Ombudsman to exercise his discretion to investigate this late complaint now.
