SUDIC and Child Death Review Processes in Leeds

Working Together 2018  states that:  All practitioners, working within organisations and agencies with functions relating to children, who were involved in the child’s life and at the time of their death, have a responsibility to contribute to the review of their death.

We encourage attendees from the Children’s Social Work, Education and Early Help sectors in particular, to attend this session.

This session will cover the following:

  • Child Death Review process overview – legislation and practice
  • SUDIC (sudden unexpected Death in childhood) defined and the children’s practitioner’s role in the process
  • National and Local Statistics
  • Lessons learned and the role of the Child Death Overview Panel

This one and a half hour briefing will be delivered by Shelagh Davenport, SUDIC Professional Lead, Leeds Community Healthcare Trust.
