Child Death Overview Panel

The Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP) was established in April 2008.  The panel has created local structures and processes to review all deaths of children normally resident in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. It is the final, independent scrutiny of a child’s death by professionals.
