South East Clinical Senate


Clinical Senates provide a source of strategic independent advice and leadership about how services should be designed to provide the best overall care and outcomes for patients.

The purpose of the Clinical Senate covering Kent, Surrey and Sussex is to:

  • promote and support the spread of best practice, innovation and good ideas, in partnership with the strategic clinical networks and Operational Delivery Networks, the Academic Health Science Network, and other relevant organisations.
  • Support the public profile for the clinical case for service change or reconfiguration, where the Clinical Senate has concluded it will improve patient outcomes or experience.
  • Provide expert, independent clinical advice and support in the assurance of strategic service change to NHS England Area and Regional Teams.
