The Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP) is a statutory multi-agency partnership which has the responsibility to review all deaths of children who are normally resident in Somerset. It identifies any modifiable factors in the circumstances of the death and makes multi-agency recommendations for service improvement.

Local arrangements for CDOP are changing in the summer of 2019.  New Terms of Reference and a Memorandum of Understanding between the child death safeguarding partners can be found on the Somerset CCG website:
