Our networks work in partnership with commissioners (including local government), supporting their decision making and strategic planning, by working across the boundaries of commissioner, provider and voluntary organisations as a vehicle for improvement for patients, carers and the public.
In this way, Strategic Clinical Networks will:
- reduce unwarranted variation in health and well being services
- encourage innovation in how services are provided now and in the future
- provide clinical advice and leadership to support their decision making and strategic planning
Established in 2013 as a result of the policy documents Strategic Clinical Networks: The way forward (July 2012) and Strategic Clinical Networks: Single Operating Framework (November 2012) the Strategic Clinical Networks serve in key areas of major health and well being challenge.
