Developing Clinical Senates (NHS Commissioning Board)


Clinical Senates are to be established across the country from April 2013. There will be 12 Clinical Senates in England.

Clinical Senates will include different professionals and include representatives of patients, volunteers and other groups. They are intended to work with Strategic Clinical Networks, Academic Health Science Networks, Local Education and Training Boards and research networks. They are intended to influence commissioning by providing strategic clinical advice and leadership across broad geographical areas to clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), to health and wellbeing boards (HWBs) and to the NHS Commissioning Board.
