RCN factsheet: Clinical senates and strategic clinical networks

02 September 2012
Short briefing on clinical senates and strategic clinical networks, two new types of organisation formed by the Health and Social Care Act 2012. 

Nurses have been listed as one of the professional groups which will be involved in both clinical senates and strategic clinical networks, but it is not yet clear if each network will be required to have a nurse member or not.

The RCN will be closely monitoring their development to make sure that the expertise and experience of the nursing profession is properly used.
