Where there are any doubts about the person’s capacity to consent to the enquiry and advise of their outcomes, a mental capacity assessment and if necessary best interest decision in relation to this will be undertaken
• Establish who is involved with the person’s care and who needs to be involved in the enquiry  
• Hold a strategy meeting or discussion
Are you:
• passionate about safeguarding
• do you enjoy working in a fast paced team?
• Are you innovative and seek to continually improve the services you deliver?
