Child Death Overview Panel Annual Report 2017-2018

Since April 2008 all deaths of children up to the age of 18 years, excluding still births and planned terminations, are reviewed by a Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP) to accommodate the national guidance and statutory requirement set out in Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015. The panel is multiagency with differing areas of professional expertise. This process is undertaken locally for all children who are normally resident in North Yorkshire and City of York.

The North Yorkshire and City of York Child Death Overview Panel produces an annual report each year to report on instances of child death and actions of the group.  The Child Death Overview Panel Annual Report 2017 - 2018 is now available from:
