Social care to be improved after toddler's death

15th February 2012

A report focussing on the role of social workers and health care staff in the case of a toddler murdered by his drug addict mother in Scotland has been published.

Kimberley Hainey, 37, was sentenced to a minimum of 15 years for killing her son Declan at their Paisley home. Renfrewshire Council and the NHS commissioned a significant case review, which concluded that things “could, and should have been done differently.” The local authority said it had already taken action to address areas of concern raised in the report, which was held back until criminal proceedings were completed.
