Quality HealthCare’s purpose is to help people live longer, healthier and happier lives and strong clinical governance is critical in achieving these goals.
The Clinical Governance and Quality Strategy sets out the approach we are taking to improve quality and safety. It provides an essential roadmap on how to meet the goal of providing every customer with the highest standard of accessible care.
Building on the well-established framework of clinical governance, we want to move towards a culture of continuous quality improvement. We want to move beyond a model of accepting compliance standards as the norm and, focusing on outcomes, to a culture of innovation and excellence driven by high expectations of achieving the very best.
We have developed a clinical governance framework to support the aspiration for excellence and good governance of clinical care. This framework provides a consistent identification, reporting and monitoring approach. The framework consists of the following six pillars:
