Clinical Governance

Clinical Governance is the framework through which organisations are accountable for continuously improving the quality of their services and safeguarding high standards of care by creating an environment in which excellence in clinical care will flourish.

  • Clinical Audits
  • Access, Referral, treatment and discharge strategies.
  • Clinical incident management strategies
  • Risk management strategies
  • Complaints management
  • Patient safety management programs
  • Continuous medical education programs
  • Research governance, projects and outcomes.

A number of Specialist groups and committees have also been set up to share and develop good practice and deliver elements of clinical governance.

These committees include:

  • The pharmaceutical and therapeutics committee
  • The resuscitation committee
  • The theatre users committee
  • The medical equipment committee
  • The Infection control committee
  • The Health and safety committee
  • The Quality assurance action group
