Clinician Fact Sheet: Clinical Governance

Clinical governance ensures that everyone – from frontline clinicians to managers and members of governing bodies, such as boards – understands their role and is accountable to patients and the community for assuring the delivery of safe, effective and high-quality services.

Good clinical governance is not just about managers and governing bodies. Clinicians play a vital role and have responsibilities to support clinical governance systems.
