Clinical Senates were established by the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

There are 12 Clinical Senates across England. As of March 2014 it was reported that by the end of 2013 two had not met at all, three had met only once, and three met twice. Two clinical senates had met three times by the end of 2013.[1] Sir David Nicholson, Chief Executive of NHS England in his retirement interview was most critical of clinical senates, which he rated just four out of 10. “I don’t quite see the benefits coming through at the moment,” he said.[2]
