Clinical Senates

NHS Clinical Senates help a broad cross-section of health professionals, patients and public engage with statutory commissioners. This group identifies areas with potential to improve outcomes.

A Clinical Senate should represent its local population, helping local commissioners advise on how to:

  • Implement best practice
  • Be a source of clinical leadership and credibility
  • Proactively promote major service changes
  • Link clinical expertise and local knowledge, i.e. across patient pathways
  • Engage with clinical networks

There are 12 Clinical Senates across the country – they are based on patient flow and geographical locations.
