National Child Mortality Database arrangements published

Arrangements for reporting child deaths to the new National Child Mortality Database (NCMD) have been published. From 1 April 2019, any new child death or any open cases of children who died before that date should be added to the NCMD. This guidance sets out the actions that should be taken. The NCMD team will not accept data relating to deaths that have already been reviewed by the CDOP prior to 1 April 2019.
