Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP)

Page updated 17/09/2019

CDOP is changing!

16 partners from CCGs and LAs covering Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster are creating the new North West London Child Death Review (NWL CDR) service, to deliver the new Child Death Review statutory requirements they now hold.

Following consultation, a new CDR team is being set up to operate across NWL on a phased basis, during Autumn 2019.

Please note: existing local CDOP arrangements will continue as now until the new NWL CDR Team is in place. Up to 25 September 2019, please continue to notify any child death (Form A) through eCDOP to Brent local contacts (See below).

From 26 September 2019 please use the new North West London NWL eCDOP:

For further information about the upcoming NWL CDR approach see the ‘Statement of Transition’ here
