South East Coast Strategic Clinical Networks (SECSCNs)


Strategic Clinical Networks (SCNs) are networks to improve health services for specific patient groups or conditions. They work in partnership with commissioners (including local government), and support strategic planning and commissioning decisions. Such networks work across commissioner, provider and voluntary sector boundaries.

SCNs aim to help reduce unwarranted variations in health and wellbeing services, encourage innovation in service provision, and provide clinical leadership and advice to inform local decision-making, strategic planning and best practice.

South East Coast Strategic Clinical Networks (SECSCNs) support Kent, Surrey and Sussex. SECSCNs currently comprise four networks, concentrating on:

  1. Mental Health, Dementia and Neurological Conditions.
  2. Cancer.
  3. Cardiovascular (including Cardiac, Stroke, Renal and Diabetes).
  4. Maternity, Children and Young People.

Possibly of particular interest to readers is a one-page mental health, dementia and neurological conditions (MHDN) summary plan:
