Lastly, third objective is to understand the various factors influencing the well-being and health of people in health and social care environment. LO1: Q1. Local Authorities It is the corporate responsibility of any and all local authorities to protect and check on the welfare of vulnerable people especially the adults. The local authorities are likely to achieve this task through their coordination with other agencies, the service users, and the voluntary groups (World Health Organization, 2016). Local Health Boards The local health boards in any setting have the legislative responsibility of operating mutually alongside the local institutions, with the aim of creating policies for better welfare, social care and physical conditions for citizens within their jurisdiction. Additionally, the Local Health Board compensates for most of the hospitals and family fitness services provisions (World Health Organization, 2016). Social Service Authorities The Social Service Authorities as one of the agencies have the responsibility to harmonize the local strategy regulation for the defense of vulnerable adults who are prone to exploitation. The law is used according to section-7 base on the Local Authority Social Services Act 1970, requiring the local agencies or authorities to work under the National Assembly supervision. Moreover, the social services have a constitutional mandate to provide a series of aid and care for the vulnerable adults. The Social Services are also accountable for evaluation management of the adult’s needs and wellbeing encouragement (World Health Organization, 2016). NHS Trusts with Secondary Health Care Providers The National Health Service Trusts are responsible for providing inferior as well as tertiary out-patient and in-patient services. All the community and hospital staff should be equipped with the multiple ways of building an adult protection agency and be aware of their roles and reference guide for experts (World Health Organization, 2016). National Public Health Service (NPHS) The NPHS has no responsibility of providing legislative functions but provides recommendations, support, and direction to related agencies, for instance, the Local Health Boards. National Public Health Services is responsible or accountable for notifying and lending a hand in the provision of the right obligations (World Health Organization, 2016).
