Child Death Arrangements
The responsibility for reviewing the deaths of all children has now been transferred from the auspices of former Safeguarding Children Boards (now Multi Agency Safeguarding Arrangements) to CCGs and Public Health.
Please find attached Dudley’s Child Death Arrangements published on 29th June 2019. Currently Dudley and Sandwell manage a joint Child Death Overview panel (CDOP) which determines if there are any modifiable factors in domains related to the child and the wider system. There is also a strategic Black Country CDOP in development which will determine any themes requiring a health or public health response across the Black Country.
