Health conditions and health care
The death of a child is a tragic event that profoundly affects both the family and wider community. Child death review partners have a statutory responsibility to review the deaths of all children normally resident in their local area. The purpose of the review is to determine whether any factor(s) related to the death impact or have the potential to affect, the health and wellbeing of local residents and to identify recommendations and actions that may mitigate future child injuries, accidents or death.
Southwark and Lambeth work in partnership when reviewing child deaths. The boroughs jointly review the deaths of children normally resident in the area to support meaningful analysis of findings and share learning.
Southwark and Lambeth, together with key partners and stakeholders have produced a number of documents identifying the local population needs. Please note that this list will be updated as and when the new information becomes available.
