The Network has a number of sector and project based Reference Groups made up of member representatives covering the commissioning, acute, mental health and community sectors.
The role of the Reference Groups is to consider and advise the Steering Group on new topic proposals, advise on project content and definitions, and monitor the delivery of projects.
Due to the complex nature of commissioning organisations, the Network has several project reference groups that have expert representatives from the membership on each of the project topics that the Network facilitates. For information regarding the commissioner project reference groups, please contact Claire Holditch.
