Child death overview process
We have a responsibility to look into the circumstances when a child dies, as set out in Working Together to Safeguarding Children 2018.
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 and expected death of a child
- an overview of all child deaths in Kent.
Reporting a Child Death
To notify us of the death of a child resident in Kent please complete a Form A (notification of a child death) within 24 hours.
If you have any problems with submitting a notification via the above link please contact 03000 42 47 45 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Professionals who are required to complete a Form B will be contacted directly by the NHS Child Death Review Service.
