Clinical networks are groups of health professionals, health organisations and consumers who work collaboratively to provide leadership and clinical service development across a number of specialty areas of healthcare.

The benefit of clinical networks is that they bring together people from a range of health services and other areas to address common issues and improve the quality of care provided.

Victoria has clinical networks in these specialty areas:

  • cancer
  • cardiac
  • emergency care
  • maternity and newborn
  • palliative care
  • paediatric
  • renal
  • stroke.
