What are the Strategic Clinical Networks?
Strategic Clinical Networks (SCNs) 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, SCNs will:
- Reduce unwarranted variation in health and wellbeing services
- Encourage innovation in how services are provided now and in the future
- Provide clinical advice and leadership to support their decision making & strategic planning
