The Serious Case Review into the death of Daniel Jones has concluded that his death may have been avoidable.
According to the report, twenty-three month-old Daniel died as a result of an event which “had not been foreseen by any of the professionals involved with the family”.
It goes on to say that his death may have been avoided, had professionals involved with the family realised the potential risks Daniel faced as a result of his parents’ drug and alcohol abuse.
An action plan has been drawn up following the review, recommending forty-four ways in which the agencies involved could improve care, including making the family – rather than individuals – the focus of drug and alcohol treatment services and how inter-agency working should be improved.
