South East Clinical Senates

Independent, clinical and strategic advice for health systems in the south east

Deciding Together: Mental Health Inpatient and Older Peoples Services across Newcastle and Gateshead.

Newcastle-Gateshead CCG had developed a range of clinical scenarios for mental health service configuration as part of their Deciding Together programme. The CCG approached the Senate to ask for an independent review of these clinical scenarios to help provide assurance to their programme board and governing body as they progress towards final decision-making.
