South Wales & South West Managed Clinical Network

A single Managed Clinical Network (MCN) for cleft lip and/or palate services has been established for South Wales and the South West of England.

The purpose of the MCN is, through the Managed Clinical Network Board, to organise and coordinate the delivery of an integrated cleft lip and/or palate service with two lead centres based on the main sites of Morriston Hospital, Swansea and University of Bristol Dental Hospital.

Service philosophy

The philosophy of cleft lip and/or palate care is underpinned by a team approach providing holistic care to the family into which a child with a cleft lip and/or palate is born. The network will provide multi-disciplinary specialised care/treatment for at least the first 20 years of life to produce optimal physical function, psychological adjustment and aesthetics.
