Child Death Review Report : Scottish Government Child Death Review Working Group

A report by a Scottish Government short-life working group which explored current practice in Scotland and considered whether Scotland should introduce a national collaborative multi-agency system for reviewing the circumstances surrounding the death of a child.

Child Health Commissioners' Questionnaire of current practice

25. In a survey, Child Health Commissioners described a series of review processes occurring at a Health Board level but with no standardised template listed to align these processes in a unified way to promote learning. As above, there were some examples of good multi-disciplinary working within health but outside the Significant Case Review process and Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI) review, there were few examples of multi-agency review. Child Health Commissioners were generally in favour of a more formalised child death review process across Scotland.
