Annual Reviews


The Care Act states that the review should be person centred, outcome (not service) focused and accessible and proportionate to the needs being met and that plans must be kept generally under review.

Reviews need to consider what outcomes have been achieved, what has worked and has not worked, changes to support networks, whether any changes are required and whether eligibility criteria are still met.

Any social care staff responsible for conducting person centred reviews
