When the death of a child is reported in Derbyshire, it is our duty to make sure that there is a review of the circumstances of the death.
The review is carried out by a child death overview panel, made up of representatives from the organisations which are part of the our safeguarding children's board.
The panel reviews all deaths of children and young people aged under 18 (excluding those babies who are stillborn).
There is useful information in this leaflet for parents and carers. The child death review − A guide for parents and carers, which is attached to this page.
