The South West Clinical Networks brins people together to advise on what good care services look like which will improve health care outcomes for our population now and for future generations.
The South West Clinical Networks work in partnership with commissioners 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.
The South West 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.
