The forum will meet every three months and will advise our Executive Medical Director and Executive Director of Nursing on the clinical issues facing providers, as well as providing feedback on our policies and proposals.
Representation has been sought from across the NHS, including acute, specialist, community, ambulance and mental health providers.
Dr Kathy McLean, Executive Medical Director for NHS Improvement said:
"We want to listen and learn from trusts and foundation trusts across England. We can only achieve our goal of supporting the NHS to make sustainable improvements with the help and input from those working organisations caring for patients every day.
"Medical Directors and Directors of Nursing already hold a significant amount of experience and knowledge and I look forward to working with them to spread improvement throughout the system."
Ruth May, Executive Director of Nursing for NHS Improvement said:
"The Clinical Forum is an example of how we are actively seeking to collaborate across professional boundaries and across health sectors. The members of the Clinical Forum will ensure that we support providers in a way that enables them to deliver high quality patient care."
