Our Networks

About our Networks

Each of our networks has a number of dedicated working groups which support the delivery of our workplans. Their members include commissioners and providers with specialist knowledge and interest in their fields. These groups may be supported by sub-groups, or task and finish groups.

Chaired and led by their network's Clinical Lead and supported by our dedicated Network Managers, these groups have decision-making responsibilities and authority, given by the Oversight Group.

The Steering Group has day-to-day responsibility for the strategic and operational development and delivery of each network's work programme.

Who is involved?

The Network Clinical Leads are responsible for clinical leadership, engagement and influencing network activities. Key aspects of their role are:

  • Providing clinical advice and leadership within the SCN
  • Providing clinical advice and governance to the SCN Oversight Group

They are accountable to both the Clinical Director and the Associate Director for the North West Coast Strategic Clinical Networks.
