Following the death of a 23-month old baby boy from a drugs overdose, a serious case review by Bristol’s safeguarding children board has taken place. The review found that there had been a breakdown of co-operation between the boy’s parents and many of the professional agencies working with them. These agencies included drug agencies, midwives, housing officials, health visitors and social workers. The report stated that the authorities had not done enough to challenge the couple in their care of their son, with “no sustained, planned approach to this lack of co-operation”.
