Child and Youth Clinical Networks

What are clinical networks?

A clinical network is a linked group of professionals and organisations working together in a co-ordinated manner with clear governance and accountability arrangements.

They offer a way of linking services, or programmes, so as to achieve a continuum of care along which patients and their families travel. And through shared understanding, they enable better co-ordination of services along the continuum of care involving primary, secondary and tertiary services.

A clinical network is designed to support best clinical practice at all levels of service provision.
