Section 34F: Procedure in respect of investigations

332.Section 34F deals with the procedure for conducting an investigation. The adult social care provider concerned, and anyone alleged to have been responsible for taking or authorising the action complained about, must be allowed the opportunity to comment. This means that whoever carried out the action complained about, whether this is the provider, or someone else who has carried out the action on behalf of the provider, that person must be given an opportunity to comment. Investigations must be conducted in private. But otherwise it is for the Local Commissioner to decide how to conduct the investigation. The Local Commissioner may obtain information and make enquiries from any person as they see fit under subsection (4).
