Child death reviews

Child death review arrangements were managed locally in Bexley until September 2019. In line with revised statutory guidance, these arrangements have been re-located to Lewisham as part of a tri-borough arrangement for Bexley, Greenwich and Lewisham.

Bexley Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP) is now part of this tri-borough arrangement.
