Clinical Governance

Clinical governance is the way the NHS works to improve the quality of care patients receive and to maintain that high quality of care. It is about ensuring that patients get the right care at the right time from the right person and that it happens right first time.

At NOW Medical Staffing, our team, and the staff we provide believe that clinical governance is the responsibility of every member of staff, including doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, radiographers, laboratory staff, cleaners, porters and administrative staff. Everyone works together to ensure that patients receive the best possible care.

Staffing and staff management is vital to your ability to provide high-quality care. NOW Medical Staffing understand the need to have highly skilled staff, working in an efficient team and in a well supported environment.

We understand that if your staff are to offer the highest quality care, it is important that we work in partnership with them to ensure the highest standards in:

  • Education and Training
  • Clinical audit
  • Clinical effectiveness
  • Research and development
  • Openness
  • Risk management
  • Information Management
