Clinical Senates have been established to be a source of independent, strategic advice and guidance to commissioners and other stakeholders to help them to make the best decisions about healthcare for the populations they represent.
The Clinical Senate Council is a small multi-professional steering group. This group co-ordinates and manages the Senate’s business. It maintains a strategic overview across their region and is responsible for the formulation and provision of advice working with the broader Senate Assembly.
The Clinical Senate Assembly is a diverse multi-professional forum providing the Council with ready access to a pool of experts from a broad range of health and care professions. The Assembly also includes patient representatives and encompasses the birth to death spectrum of NHS Care.
