Review of the Social Care Service at Rampton Hospital

This review was initiated by the Associate Director, Safeguarding and Social Care at Nottinghamshire Healthcare Foundation Trust (NHCFT) and was given authority to proceed by Rampton’s senior managers. 

The aim was to identify the unique contribution that Social Care and safeguarding make in a modern Forensic High Secure Service.


Phase 1

  1. The current services offered within Rampton Social Work and the wider Social Care Service
  2. The values, knowledge and skills required by Social Workers with the Forensic Social Work Professional Capabilities Framework
  3. How the services are able to articulate and measure the impact of what they do
  4. How these factors are evidenced and balanced across Social Work Standards and other regulatory frameworks
  5. Identify what makes the services a good place to work

Phase one identified learning and quality improvements required to support the delivery of a Social Care Service, which are currently being worked on by the Social Care Service via a Quality Improvement Plan.

This phase of the review was undertaken by Malcolm Dillon, an independent consultant, who qualified as a social worker and has over 40 years’ experience working in local authorities and for the NHS. From 2015-2019 he was the Independent Chair of Nottingham City Safeguarding Adults Board.

The implementation of this Review will form phase 2. This is currently being worked on by Rampton Social Care Service.
