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 five committees dedicated to reviewing deaths of children and young people, babies and mothers where death is caused by pregnancy or childbirth, deaths resulting from family violence, deaths associated with surgery, and deaths by suicide.
