Clinical Directors' Network

The aim of the Clinical Directors' Network is to promote and encourage information sharing and good practice between clinical directors in UK NHS departments of anaesthesia, intensive care medicine and pain management.

The network offers a variety of services to its members to facilitate this aim:

  • organising regular national meetings with a variety of topics and speakers relevant to clinical leadership
  • maintaining an online forum where members can ask questions and share information
  • regional WhatsApp groups for members to interact with other leads in their region and discuss local issues.

The network is led by a national executive committee, who along with promoting, maintaining and encouraging the development of the network, assist the College, NHS employers, the wider NHS and individual doctors in improving quality and standards of practice by developing and providing a consistent approach to issues raised in the management of anaesthesia related services.
