What is an MCN?


Managed Clinical Networks (MCN) were set up to

  • assist in developing aspects of the management of Long Term Conditions (LTC) such as diabetes, cardiovascular, rheumatological and respiratory diseases and chronic pain
  • promote health improvement in Glasgow and Clyde in new and creative ways
  • promote close working between patients, carers, local authorities and the voluntary sector to help plan both preventative and care services
  • review services to ensure everyone can access high quality, evidence-based services, while acknowledging potential financial limitations
  • review guidelines and protocols for the management of various conditions consistent with national guidelines
  • provide readily-available information about Long Term Conditions and health care for those who wish to access it
