Stoke-on-Trent Serious Case Review Reports 2015
John Wood, Independent Chair of the Stoke-on-Trent Safeguarding Children Board, said:
“Baby Shanelle’s death was a tragic loss that has had a devastating impact on those closest to her. A baby’s death is particularly heart breaking and our thoughts go to the Adkins family.
All safeguarding board partners have worked through a Serious Case Review to see whether any improvements can be made to the way we protect and safeguard children across Stoke-on-Trent.
Improvements put in place include the introduction of multi-agency training so that professionals have a greater awareness
of how to work with families who have shared care arrangements. Other work has been underway to make sure all professionals
who work with children are constantly aware of their shared responsibilities to safeguard those children.”
John Wood, Independent Chair of the Stoke-on-Trent Safeguarding Children Board said:
“This is a truly tragic situation and our thoughts are with Mr Galikowski and his wider family. The devastating
events united a whole community in grief and have been treated with the utmost seriousness by the city council, the police,
health and other public services. We work closely together to protect and safeguard children across our city.
All safeguarding board partners have rigorously worked through a Serious Case Review to identify what improvements need to be made and as a result, a number of improvements have been put in place. This includes the introduction of a 24 hour mental health and social care access team, better IT and better systems. It is getting these things right through a multi-agency response that will improve how we protect children. "
“Our deepest sympathies go to Mr Galikowski.”
