Managed Diagnostic Networks are defined as co-ordinated groups of health professionals that support diagnostic services to continuously improve service delivery in order to ensure equitable provision of high quality, clinically effective services. In this session, you will find out about their five-year vision for the main laboratory disciplines and the difference they have made through collaborating across NHS Boards.
