Explain who needs to be informed of any incidents where restrictive interventions have been used

If a restrictive intervention must be used, it is necessary to contact the service manager. Depending on the situations, the emergency services may need to be contacted (police if a crime has been committed or an ambulance if there are injuries). Social Services and health professionals (e.g. GP, psychologist) may also need to be informed and the family of the individual may also need to be contacted.
