4 (4) ADULT SOCIAL CARE STATUTORY REPRESENTATIONS AND COMPLAINTS REPORT 2017-18 – The Director: Governance and Partnerships submitted a report presenting the annual Adult Social Care Statutory Representations and Complaints Report 2017-18 for approval in line with statutory requirements.

There was a statutory requirement to present an annual report on representations and complaints which have been addressed under The Local Authority Social Services and National Health Service Complaints (England) Regulations 2009, Making Experiences Count.

These statutory procedures gave service users, or representatives acting on their behalf, the right to make representations about social care services for older people, people with a physical disability and people with a learning disability.

There was a requirement that councils addressed these representations through a two stage procedure. The first stage of the process rested with the council and applied the principles of a local resolution based on “do it once, do it right”. The second stage was a referral to the Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman.

Resolved – That the Annual Representations and Complaints Report for Adult Social Care 2017-18 be received and approved.
