Lunch and Learn Child Death Review Autumn 2023

When a child dies, in any circumstances, it is important for parents and families to understand what has happened and whether there are any lessons to be learned. The responsibility for ensuring child death reviews are carried out is held by ‘child death review partners’, who, in relation to a local authority area in England, are defined as the local authority for that area and any clinical commissioning groups operating in the local authority area. Child death review partners must make arrangements to review all deaths of children normally resident in the local area.

The child death review partnership for Surrey will be running one hour lunchtime learning events for professionals generally on the second Tuesday of each month on themes identified from child deaths including:

  • Modifiable factors/themes related to child deaths in Surrey
  • Modifiable factors/themes related to child deaths nationally
  • Themes and recommendations from Coroner Regulation 28 reports to prevent future deaths

These sessions will be an opportunity to look at how you can work across the system to reduce infant and child mortality locally, to build on good practice, to identify gaps in provision and to look at how you can work together to ensure effective and consistent messaging to families in Surrey.  These sessions are for a wide range of professionals.
