Clinical Senate Assembly

The East Midlands Clinical Senate was established to support commissioners to make the best decisions about healthcare for the populations they represent. Since the introduction of Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships, the Clinical Senate has made engagement with our STPs a top priority in our Work Programme.

The Clinical Senate Assembly is a diverse, multi-professional membership forum, providing a clinical resource and access to experts from the full range of health and care professions.Clinical Senate Assembly members will be invited to participate in issues of strategic importance to improve healthcare in the East Midlands and formulate independent clinical advice. Members will work in multi-professional groups to provide their expert knowledge and opinion – clinical reviews could be virtual (desk top review) or a physical meeting based in one of our STP Footprints in the East Midlands (Nottinghamshire; Derbyshire, Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland; Northamptonshire; Lincolnshire).

Senate Assembly membership will be for two years. Your time commitment is flexible and will depend on membership of the working groups. There is likely to be an annual Assembly event to support professional development, and which promotes the role of the Clinical Senate – which will attract CPD points.
