The Clinical Senate's purpose is to collaborate with commissioners in order to outline the best possible setups for services, all in the pursuit of providing high-quality, long-lasting healthcare. To accomplish this, we create inquiries related to specific service areas, and these questions are deliberated upon during Senate Council meetings. Through this process, the Clinical Senate aspires to become a valuable ally, offering essential insights and guidance to the entire healthcare system.
