Welcome to the NHS Fife Respiratory Managed Clinical Network (MCN). In this section of the site we will let you know about the MCN, how you can be involved and information about respiratory diseases.


Why an MCN?

MCNs have been established to promote consistency and quality of service throughout the care pathway, and the bringing of service user and provider views to the service planning process, to help in the fundamental Delivering for Health aim of developing services which are truly person-centred, delivered locally wherever possible but specialised where need be.

Our role is to improve the health and wellbeing of the people (children and adults) of Fife with respiratory disease by coordinating the development and provision of the best possible integrated care across service and professional boundaries. To seek continual quality improvement in the care given to patients. MCNs are integral to achieving the three Quality Ambitions: Safe, Clinically Effective and Person-Centred.
