About Us

Cheshire & Mersey Adult Critical Care Operational Delivery Network (CMCCN) is one of the largest in England. The Isle of Man is also now part of our network. Our work is focused on clinical engagement and collaboration. Critical care is an area with a relatively poor evidence base; therefore support from senior clinicians, from various professions, is invaluable in securing consensus in best practice and in the reduction of inequities of care delivery for our patients. This is essential in order to maintain the drive and momentum for improved quality of service for the acute and critically ill.

CMCCN has delivered significant and consistent results over the past 12 years by initiating, facilitating, supporting and monitoring service improvement for critically ill patients across organisational and professional boundaries. It has a high profile both locally and nationally as an exemplar of the network model; in addition key members of the network team have experience of national leadership roles and achievements.

CMCCN has evolved since its inception and plays an increasingly crucial role in the provision of effective and efficient care for this highly specialist area of patient care. Working with a wide range of stakeholders our overall aim is to improve patient experience and outcomes, reduce inequity and improve access to acute and critical care services practising best quality individualised care.

Critical care is an essential component of acute healthcare and a valued resource across the health economy. CMCCN provides an important link between commissioners and providers as well as providing expert advice in managing this expensive resource for the benefit of critically ill patients. In addition the role of CMCCN is essential to enable critical care to be utilised for maximum benefit in managing major contingencies.
