What is the National Clinical Forum?
The National Clinical Forum was set up in November 2011 to offer expert advice to local health boards on their plans to change some of their services in response to the Welsh Government’s Together for Health strategy.
What is the Forum’s purpose?
The Forum considers whether health board plans:
- are appropriately influenced by relevant evidence and best practice;
- provide a basis for sustainable delivery of services; and
- combine to create a realistic and ambitious way forward for healthcare in Wales.
What are the Forum’s powers?
The Forum is an advisory task and finish group. It has no decision-making powers or right of veto over any plans it considers. However it can challenge plans and invite health board leaders for further discussions.
Who chairs the Forum?
Professor Mike Harmer chairs the Forum. Professor Harmer is the current Chair of the Welsh Health Specialised Services Committee (WHSSC) and is former Deputy Chief Medical Officer of Wales.
Who else is on the Forum?
A range of medical fields are represented on the Forum, including women’s and children’s health. Mental health, surgery, critical care, medicine, general practice, therapies, rural health, dental care and nursing are also represented.
