RADAR is a confidential, multi-agency, collaborative information sharing group. There are three groups across Lancashire (North, Central and East).
Each group meets on a monthly basis and receives information from a variety of sources where concerns have been identified regarding residential, nursing and domiciliary care providers. The information received will inform decisions about how best to support providers who have been identified as requiring improvements and escalate as appropriate.
Lancashire's Quality Improvement Planning (QIP) process is a confidential planned and coordinated multi-agency response designed to ensure that when significant issues are raised regarding a significant shortfall in the quality of care delivered by a registered care provider the issues are addressed.
The QIP process is not a replacement for individual safeguarding alerts, referrals and enquiries, and is not an emergency response.
