star this property answer text <p><br /></p><p>Child Death Overview Panels are the responsibility of Local Safeguarding Children’s Boards (LSCBs). LSCBs in England have a responsibility under the Children Act 2004 to conduct child death reviews for all under 18s who die and who were normally resident in their area. They are required to collect and analyse information relating to the deaths in order to identify:</p><br /><p>- any cases which may also require a serious case review;</p><p>- any matters affecting the safety and welfare of children in that area; and</p><p>- any wider public health or safety concerns arising from a particular death or patterns of death.</p><br /><p>Stillbirths are not within their legal statutory remit set out in the Act and there are no plans to extend this remit.</p><br /><p>We are however committed to reducing the number of stillbirths and want England to achieve the lowest rate of stillbirth and neonatal death in the world. The Department is currently working in partnership with the stillbirth charity Sands, and a range of key organisations including NHS England to take forward a programme of work on stillbirth prevention. Reducing stillbirth and infant mortality and improving the safety of maternity services improvement areas for the NHS in the NHS Outcomes Framework. In addition, the Department provided start-up funding for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists’ ‘Each Baby Counts’ programme, which aims to reduce stillbirths, early neonatal deaths and brain injuries due to incidents in labour in the United Kingdom by 50% by 2020.</p><br /><p><ins class="ministerial">NHS England has asked Baroness Julia Cumberlege to lead a major review of maternity services to modernise care for women and babies across the country, as first set out in NHS England’s Five Year Forward View.</ins></p>

star this property answer text <p>The information requested is not held by the Department. The nine <a href="http://www.professionalstandards.org.uk/regulators/statutory-regulators-directory" target="_blank">health and care professional regulatory bodies</a> within the United Kingdom are responsible for operational matters concerning the discharge of their statutory duties including fitness-to-practise (FtP) investigations against their registrants. Relevant information provided by the General Medical Council (GMC), Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and General Dental Council (GDC) is included below.</p><p> </p><p>The GMC reports that four European Economic Area (EEA) doctors and no non-EEA doctors have appeared at a FtP tribunal <del class="ministerial">and been suspended</del> due wholly or partly to lack of English language skills, since its legislation changed in June 2014 to introduce inadequate English language skills as a grounds for finding a doctor’s fitness to practise is impaired. <ins class="ministerial">Of the four, two were suspended and two had conditions imposed on their registration. Conditions restrict a doctor’s practice or require them to take remedial action. In these cases, the purpose of conditions is to help protect patients while allowing the doctor to remedy any deficiencies in their practice or knowledge of English. </ins>In addition, since the GMC was given new powers in relation to the language skills of doctors, it has dealt with 3,289 registration applications from EEA doctors. 1,970 of them were able to demonstrate that they met the English language requirements as part of their application and were granted registration with a licence to practise. 1,319 doctors were registered but have not been granted a licence to practise either because they did not provide any evidence of their English language skills or the evidence they provided was insufficient. Doctors cannot practise in the UK without a licence to practise.</p><p> </p><p>The NMC reports that until legislative change took effect in January 2016, it did not record poor English language skills as a case type within FtP. Previously all cases were recorded under an umbrella category of ‘Lack of competence – communication issues’. This category covered a range of communication topics including failure to delegate appropriately. Since the new language control power was introduced in 2016 the NMC has been coding English language skills as a separate code.</p><p> </p><p>The GDC reports that following an update to its Standards in 2013, it takes the requirement to be sufficiently fluent in written and spoken English into account when assessing FtP cases. Since this change there have been no suspensions and one EEA Dentist has been struck-off the GDC register where the category of ‘not fluent in English’ was recorded as a consideration. The GDC notes that as a result of recent legislative change, it is taking forward associated changes to registration processes and FtP rules, which will result in further language control requirements being introduced by the end of summer.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
