SVC Recommendation 4: National Managed Clinical Network
The Scottish Government and NHS(S) should establish a network on veterans’ health. The network will have oversight of delivering the Scottish Approach to Veterans’ Health, and will consider the key issues raised in this report and others it deems relevant. It should reflect current structures in the health and social care sector in its membership and approach.
Scottish Government update:
NHS National Services Division are exploring a Managed Clinical Network as a potential longer-term solution to ensuring equitable and sustainable health services for veterans. The proposal has moved to stage two of their planning process, meaning a full application and a detailed work plan will now be developed before putting the proposal to NHS Chief Executives then Scottish Ministers.
