SUDI is the term used to describe sudden and unexpected death in infancy.
The SUDI Scotland toolkit provides information to the professions who may be involved. Many organisations play a role in investigating SUDI. As SUDI occurs rarely, some professionals may be involved in only one case. This toolkit offers a support resource for an unfamiliar occurrence, guiding professionals as to their role in the process and thereby including support for bereaved families.
Each geographical area has a NHSG contact for any SUDI queries, however the toolkit should provide practitioners with the necessary advice and guidance. Please note this is not a 24 hour service.
