The NoECCN was established in July 2009 as a result of the merger of the two previously successful and well established managed clinical networks; North East & Cumbria and Tees Valley & South Durham. This single unified structure has further enabled effective engagement with the clinical pathway groups based on patient flow rather than administrative boundaries, providing a cost effective and sustainable structure throughout the North East and North Cumbria. It has now been established as an Operational Delivery Network (ODN) by NHS England.
