Developing operational delivery networks

The NHS Commissioning Board have announced the introduction of operational delivery networks which will complement the newly created strategic clinical networks.

Operational delivery networks (ODNs) will cover areas such as neonatal intensive care, adult critical care, burns and trauma and are focused on coordinating patient pathways between providers over a wide area to ensure access to specialist support and expertise.

ODNs will be established across England and work with other organisations in the new healthcare system including Clinical Senates, academic health science networks and local professional networks.
