How will the national changes in the Child Death Review Process affect my CDOP
Vicky Sleap Project Manager National Child Mortality Database (NCMD)
The National Child Mortality Database (NCMD) will collect information about all children in England who die before their 18th birthday.
The Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) are commissioning this programme of work on behalf of NHS England. The NCMD programme and its associated work streams are being led by the University of Bristol, in collaboration with University of Oxford, UCL Partners and QES. Key stakeholders, including representation from bereaved parents, will contribute to developing the core dataset, metrics and meaningful reporting.
The NCMD will drive improvement in the quality of health and social care for children in England to help reduce potentially avoidable deaths. It will collect a minimum dataset from the Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP) reviews of all child deaths in England. The collection, analysis and public reporting of information from all child deaths across England will facilitate learning to reduce preventable child mortality.
