A statement from the board’s independent chair, Simon Turpitt, is below.
“I am releasing today the Serious Case Review regarding the late Mrs A.
“This Review was commissioned by the Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board in order to ensure an independent view around the circumstances that led to the tragic death of Mrs A and to highlight the learning for those agencies involved.
“The Surrey Safeguarding Adults Board will hold involved agencies and organisations to account to implement the recommendations made and will monitor the impact of the changes to ensure that the improvements recommended are acted upon so that others are protected in the future.
“It is clear in this case that the legacy of child sexual abuse and its impact on Mrs A, whose brave action to testify against the perpetrators, drove her to a very vulnerable situation and certainly agencies have some key learnings from this.”
