Clinical Outcome Review Programme: Child Health Reviews - UK  is a UK-wide programme of work, systematically examining mortality and morbidity in children and young people between their 1st and 18th birthdays. 


About the programme


The programme aimed to inform clinical practice and improve the healthcare provided to children and young people - in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

There were two discrete projects: a retrospective epidemiological review of all-cause mortality; and a themed case review of mortality and morbidity in children and young with epilepsy.
