Working Pattern

With experience of working effectively at a strategic level with managers across various agencies, you will ensure that the Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP) effectively fulfils its statutory functions as set out in Working Together 2018 and supporting Child Death Review statutory and operational guidance (2018).

Working in close partnership with the Child Death Review Partners, you will chair Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP) meetings and encourage all panel members to participate fully in case discussions and case reviews.  You will ensure all child death cases are reviewed in a timely way with a focus on identifying learning to inform single and multi-agency preventable working and initiatives.  You will also be accountable for independently chairing the Black Country CDOP Strategic Partnership and leading themed reviews across the larger geography. It is expected that there will be a maximum of 14 meetings a year, and we envisage each meeting requires an additional  half day to account for preparation before the meeting and post meeting actions.  Therefore we expect the postholder to commit to an upper limit of 21 days per year

This post will be independent of all Child Death Review partner agencies to ensure compliance with statutory guidance.
