The Child Death Overview Panel collects and analyses information about the deaths of all children in Hillingdon.
Child Death Overview Panels (CDOPs) were established as a statutory requirement of Working Together 2010.
All LSCBs are required to have suitable CDOP arrangements in place. These arrangements include:
The overall principles are that in all cases enquiries should seek to;
All families should be treated with sensitivity, discretion and respect at all times, and professionals should approach their inquiry with an open mind.
The CDOP in Hillingdon is chaired by the Director of Public Health. The CDOP has agreed terms of reference, rapid response procedures and CDOP procedures.
A manager has been appointed to organise and manage all processes relating to the Rapid Response and the CDOP. Hillingdon LSCB receives regular reports about the numbers of children whose deaths have been deemed to be preventable and of any action which has been taken to prevent future deaths of children, which include environmental changes, multi agency training and policy changes. The CDOP also ensures that important safety messages are delivered to the public through media, leaflets and posters.
