Clinical Governance

Clinical Governance is a framework through which NHS organizations 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.

At Oakwood Medical Centre we have:

  • Clear lines of responsibility for the overall quality of clinical care.
  • A comprehensive programme of quality improvement systems (including clinical audit, supporting and applying evidence-based practice, implementing clinical standards and guidelines, workforce planning and development).
  • Education and training plans, including procedures for all professional groups to identify and remedy poor performance.
  • Clear policies aimed at managing risk.

Professional Standards

We are committed to continuing professional and personal development of the entire practice team. We also aim to maintain effective communications with other agencies.
