Welcome to the

Strategic Clinical Networks

The Greater Manchester, Lancashire and South Cumbria Strategic Clinical Networks (SCNs) was established in April 2013 - it is part of NHS England hosted by the Greater Manchester Area Team with offices in Preston and Manchester.

The SCNs are led by a Clinical Director.  It is supported by an Associate Director, with strong involvement from patients, carers and members of the public.

Our aim is to improve quality,  improve health outcomes and address unacceptable variations in health and care services. We will achieve this by providing strategic direction, enabling clinical leadership and bringing the voice of service users, carers and the public to shape evidence based pathways and models of integrated care for our populations.
