Answered by: Aileen Campbell 31 January 2017
National Managed Clinical Networks (MCNs) are the responsibility of NHS National Services Scotland’s National Services Division. A list of MCNs, including the commissioning process and establishment criteria, can be found on their dedicated website at: http://www.mcns.scot.nhs.uk/.
Our National Advisory Committee for Neurological Conditions has recently convened a subgroup dedicated to Parkinson’s disease. This subgroup will look at driving regional and national improvement in services and outcomes for people who live with the condition.
