Underpinning our complex care service is our Clinical Governance Board. The Board is Chaired by a GP and includes a Clinical Nurse Lead, our Heads of both Compliance and Training and Quality Care and the Managing Director of MyLife Specialist Care.
The function of the Clinical Governance Board is to ensure the safe delivery of clinical support with quality, evidence based, nurse led and nurse managed care. Monthly clinical Key Performance Indicators are completed and escalated to the board to ensure optimum measurement of good current practice and to identify any areas that can be improved upon. The remit is thorough and comprehensive and the process is adhered to at all times.
Initially a comprehensive risk and support assessment is undertaken to identify the level of clinical care that is required by the client. These assessments are carried out by the Clinical Nurse Specialist and a Quality Officer and overseen by the Clinical Lead, all of whom have many years’ experience in both acute services and Health and Social Care within the community.
