Details

This statistical first release presents data collected from local safeguarding children boards (LSCBs) in England. The data collection was introduced from 1 April 2008 and is designed to collect information on the number of child deaths which have been reviewed by child death overview panels (CDOPs) on behalf of their LSCBs.

The collection covers reviews completed between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2017. It includes information about the characteristics of the children who died from all CDOPs (for example the age, gender and cause of death).
