A Child in Mind: protection of children in a responsible society, report of the Commission of Inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the death of Kimberley Carlile, chaired by Louis Blom Cooper, concluded that her death was avoidable and concluded that four key social work and health staff in Greenwich had failed to apply the necessary skill, judgement and care in her case.
