Child Death Overview Process
We have a responsibility to look into the circumstances when a child dies, as set out in "Working Together to Safeguard Children."
We must arrange for:
- A rapid response by a group of key professionals who come together for the purpose of enquiring into and evaluating each unexpected death of a child,
- An overview of all child deaths in the LSCB area.
