Forum Members

The Forum provides a vehicle for clinicians and patients to debate ideas and build consensus on issues of strategic importance. It maintains a broad perspective, focusing on all elements of patient pathways including primary, community and acute and specialist care, mental health, public health and social care to identify opportunities for, and support, improvement. It enables clinical leaders to be kept up to date on developments and provides a virtual and face-to-face networking opportunity to build links within the clinical community and share best practice. Forum meetings are held quarterly.
