The South West Clinical Senate met on 17th September 2015 to deliberate:

Giving due attention to issues of local clinical engagement and ownership whilst retaining focus on economies of scale, how will all health and social care communities move from their current provision of urgent and emergency care to meet the emergent national service standard?

  1. What services need to be co-located, consolidated or decommissioned?
  2. Which sectors need strengthening and investment?
  3. What is the workforce redesign required to support the national guidance?
