Navigating neurology services: helping strategic clinical networks to be a success story – The Neurological Alliance [UK] – 17 September 2013

Extract from the foreword:

“Neurology is at last on the map! NHS England has made improvements in the care of neurological conditions a priority by including them in the first wave of conditions to benefit from strategic clinical networks (SCNs). This is a unique opportunity to bring together the expertise of health providers, commissioners and management to redesign neurological care in the interests of patients and the NHS.

SCNs are based on the very successful cancer networks. They can help us bring together innovative ideas and approaches to managing neurological conditions and learn from each other’s experience. They are particularly appropriate when a coordinated approach involving many professional groups and organisations is needed to deliver large scale change across complex pathways of care.

Neurological conditions are therefore ideally suited to a SCN approach. So often in the past, improvements in care have failed because of inability to develop successful care pathways across health divides. We now have an opportunity to get this right.”
