NEL Child Death Process
The death of a child is a tragedy and it is vital that every Child Death is carefully reviewed.
This is so that we may learn as much as possible from them, in order to better support families and to try to prevent future deaths.The LSCB are responsible for ensuring these reviews are undertaken by the Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP) for each child death in our area.
Please see the CDOP Process For Families – Leaflet From Lullaby Trust which is a guide for Parents and Carers which explains the Child Death Review process.
SAFE SLEEP ARRANGEMENTS
Learning from Child Deaths incudes making sure babies and children are provided with safe sleeping arrangements.
