Escalation/How to resolve professional disagreements

These two escalation letters provide advice about how you can act, using the correct channels, if you believe that your professional opinions have not been properly responded to. For example, if you have concerns about a lack of response to a safeguarding issue after your staff have flagged professional concerns. This would include concerns that social care services are not taking appropriate, timely actions regarding the well-being of a child or an adult at risk.
