Every child death is a tragedy for the family and the wider community. Deaths of all children, up to the age of 18 years, need to be reviewed, taking into account all available information for each death.
Reporting a child death
All Local Safeguarding Children Boards are required to have a Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP) to determine whether we can learn lessons from child deaths, in order to improve the health, safety and wellbeing of other children. Through this, we hope to prevent further child deaths.
If you are a professional seeking to report a child death you should do so via the eCDOP online portal.
