We are establishing a national hub for the prevention of child deaths, which will launch in March this year. Its focus will be to oversee the child death review process to drive a reduction in child deaths, and it will start in full in early 2020. We are currently piloting that process in three health board areas, with a further two pilots commencing later this year. We will be investing £1 million from April in that important work.
