Fran Pearson, Independent Chair of Newham Safeguarding Adults Board, said:

“Peggy’s tragic and untimely death has had a deep and lasting impact on all who knew and cared for her, and my thoughts remain with everyone affected and still grieving.

“We have reflected in depth on the findings and questions presented in the Safeguarding Adults Review and have already made a number of improvements to our ways of working.

“Myself and all members of the Newham Safeguarding Adults Board are committed to a culture of ongoing professional challenge, learning and improvement to enable us to understand where changes can and should be made – and to ensure that we are able to offer the best and most appropriate support to those we come into contact with.”
