European Reference Networks

Participation in a series of collaborative European Reference Networks is planned by the NHS England Specialised Services Clinical Leaders Forum and the NHS European Office.

European Reference Networks are also expected to become focal points for medical training and research, information dissemination and evaluation.

They are therefore particularly intended to cover medical domains where expertise is rare”.
