Southern Clinical Network

Welcome to the Southern Clinical Network

Welcome to the Southern Clinical Network (SCN) developed in 2014 and supported by South Link Health Inc., an organisation that has always been passionate about General Practice since 1993.

As a member of Southern Clinical Network General Practices will be able to:

  • Benefit from combined Primary and Secondary clinical leadership through SCN’s Clinical Governance Group
  • Take part in ongoing clinical education
  • Access world class clinical software from New Zealand’s leading clinical software developer
  • Receive personal practice visits from SCN’s clinical programmes facilitator
  • Receive support for their staff
  • Receive expert professional IT support for their computer systems, through SCN’s IT help desk and through practice visits
  • Receive strong advocacy support in negotiations with their local PHO and/or DHB

… to help ensure patients have access to the best possible care from General Practice and continuing through to hospital care where needed.

Almost all of these services are provided at no cost to the SCN member General Practice.

We are delighted that as at 20 April 2015, SCN membership included 53 General Practices with over 186,00 enrolled patients, across Otago and Southland
