Adult care assessments

What happens next?

We will aim to complete your assessment within 28 days.

If your carer is finding it difficult to cope, we will aim to assess you within seven days.

If your situation is urgent, we will aim to assess you within 24 hours.

Completed assessments

After we complete your assessment, we will ensure you have a copy.

If you are eligible for help from adult care, we will aim to arrange this within seven days of your assessment.

If you are not eligible for help, we will give you advice on services to help you continue to live independently and to maintain your quality of life.


If you are not happy with the outcome of an assessment, you can ask us to review your situation again.

If you are still not happy, you can make a complaint.
