Learning from Deaths Policy

Death in childhood is a rare event. Whenever a child dies, it is important to reflect and to learn if anything could be done differently in the future. The National Guidance on Learning from Deaths requires Trusts to have a policy for reviewing and learning from deaths.

Please find attached the GOSH interim policy that outlines the current and established processes for learning from deaths at GOSH. This policy will be added to and reviewed once statutory guidance on how child death reviews should take place is published by the UK government.
