The North Central London Child Death Overview Panel (NCL CDOP) extends its deepest sympathies to bereaved families following their unimaginably difficult loss.
We hope that our panel will provide support for those who have suffered the loss of a child and help us improve safeguarding.
The panel review the deaths of all under 18 residents in the North Central London (NCL) boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington, to help us to learn lessons from these deaths and to help identify ways to prevent future tragedies.
The panel meets after all information about the death has been gathered. It is attended by; Public health, the Police and Social Services. We look at all child deaths in NCL individually and seek to learn from each of them.
All the deaths are anonymised, and any lessons learned are shared with practitioners and parents both locally and nationally.
We welcome the views of parents/carers and you should contact the panel chair to share any issues you think might be relevant, or that might help us learn lessons for the future.
