Midland Region Clinical Networks

Clinical networks aim to:

  • Share knowledge and information to enable informed decision making.
  • Facilitate regional service quality improvement leading to better, sooner, more convenient services.
  • Support innovation and infrastructure development to reduce inequalities and build capacity and capability.

The role of a network is to lead regional planning and service improvement; link to national and regional initiatives; support the achievement of health targets and policy priorities; and reduce inequalities in clinical outcomes.  The region has networks that fall into three classifications based on their key area of focus; national priorities; services that have been identified as vulnerable for Midland; and key regional collaborative activity.
