managed clinical network

(redirected from clinical network)

managed clinical network

A network of NHS health professionals created to improve co-ordination and communication between the various disciplines involved in caring for patients with specific conditions—e.g., cancer, diabetes, chronic renal failure—by sharing information and resources and subspecialising.

MCNs strive to develop a consistent and equitable service to those who need it by promoting consistency and quality throughout the care pathway, bringing user and provider views to the planning process, developing services which are truly person-centred and delivered locally wherever possible, but specialised if needed. A managed clinical network is comprised of a range of health professionals— doctors, pharmacists, nurses, health visitors, physiotherapists and occupational therapists—and organisations from primary, secondary and regional healthcare working together to ensure that high-quality clinically effective services are fairly distributed and involve patients with experience in the disease of interest (”expert patients”).
