Mortality review committees are statutory committees that review particular deaths, or the deaths of particular people, in order to learn how to best prevent these deaths.

There are currently four ongoing committees dedicated to reviewing the deaths of children and young people, babies and mothers where death is caused by pregnancy or childbirth, deaths resulting from family violence and deaths associated with surgery, and one temporary committee established to ascertain the feasibility of suicide mortality review.
