The Portsmouth Learning from Children & Practice Committee (LCPC) implemented a review of ‘Henry’ in January 2023. ‘Henry’ was born in hospital and went home to live with both parents and their 1 year old sibling, Libby. When they were 2 months old, they were taken to hospital as parents were concerned they could hear cracking sounds coming from their chest. Examinations found that ‘Henry’ had multiple fractures and a brain bleed, these are thought to be nonaccidental.
This review was finalised in April 2023 and the findings can be found here. Please share these findings during any learning opportunities within your organisation.
