From the Review into Liam Fee`s death:
"Amongst professionals who dealt with the family, there was inadequate understanding of the roles and responsibilities of other agencies. There was no clear understanding who was in charge of the case. The role of the named person under the principles of Getting It Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) policy was relatively new in Fife at the time and not always fully understood by professionals, and may have contributed to confusion as to who was coordinating care for the family."
The role of the named person in the confusion surrounding this case (and others) was never mentioned in the BBC documentary `Fife`s Child Killings`.
