Clinical governance ensures clinical safety, quality, and continuous improvement in the delivery of health and care, including through health technologies. Clinical governance uses a person-centred, all-of-systems approach to develop clinically safe, usable, and continually improving products and services.
Our Clinical Governance Framework helps everyone in the Agency understand their responsibility to demonstrate clinical governance in the way we work throughout the delivery lifecycle of our products and services. We do this under 5 guiding principles:
Leading with our people
Systems safety and quality improvement
Effectively implementing clinical governance will help ensure clinical safety, security and privacy are always managed to a very low risk level.
