Child Death Overview Panels

Child Death Overview Panels

The Child Death Overview Panels (CDOPs) within Greater Manchester collect information and review the deaths of all children aged up to one day under 18 years (excluding stillbirths and planned terminations of pregnancy carried out within the law), who normally reside within the geographical boundaries of that CDOP.

From the 1 April 2021, all child death notifications must be reported electronically via the Greater Manchester eCDOP system.

Local Information:

Each CDOP produces an annual report which summarises the data collected that year, reviews any variations or emerging trends, and makes recommendations for future interventions and data collection. Whilst these highlight patterns and trends within each CDOP area, detailed analysis and conclusions are often limited by small numbers, with around 50 to 80 deaths per CDOP per year.
