Serious Case Reviews

Stockport SSCB conducts formal reviews of serious child abuse cases in accordance with central government guidance contained in Working Together to Safeguard Children.

Important lessons are learned from the detailed review of cases where children have died or received a life-threatening injury due to abuse or neglect.

Each serious case review is managed by experienced senior managers drawn from SSCB agencies. Members are identified according to the needs of each case to ensure that the panel is independent of involvement in the case and has access to any expert knowledge required.

Serious case reviews will remain available on this website for 6 months after publication. After this date queries in relation to past serious case reviews should be directed to the Safeguarding Unit.

Pip – August 2017

Stockport’s Safeguarding Children Board commissioned an independent Serious Case Review to identify learning and improvements in relation to the circumstances of Pip’s death.

The Board commissioned an Independent Reviewer, Peter Maddocks to complete the review. All agencies involved, and Pips parents contributed to the Review. The Board partners have been working hard to address the issues identified in the report, in order to improve the way agencies have been working together to address complex eating disorders, and to improve communication and understanding across services of this serious condition.

Our heartfelt sympathies are extended to Pip’s family and friends for their tragic loss.

Gill Frame
Independent chair of Stockport Safeguarding Children Board
