Dear David

Further to your additional question I can now confirm that Birmingham has a procedure writer that attends a policy and procedures sub group which is multi agency and all procedures are signed off by the safeguarding board prior to going live.

The procedure writer refers sections that are due for review to this group - there is a three year programme of review of all existing procedures. The procedure writer also monitors changing guidance on safeguarding issues and draft new sections or re-draft existing sections for discussion by the policy and procedures group.

When the policy and procedures group is satisfied with a new or revised section it is referred to the Operational Effectiveness Group who may make further changes before signing it off. It is then put on to the website and the Board is notified.

Yours sincerely

Tracey Robinson
