Clinical Governance

OH3 - Your Trusted Occupational Health Provider

Clinical governance at our Newcastle & Edinburgh occupational health clinics

An occupational health practice with consistently high standards of clinical governance

Clinical governance is a systematic approach to maintaining and improving the quality of patient care. The term was first used within the National Health Service (NHS) and became important in health care to address the variations in standards of care across the UK. It can be thought of under the following;

A framework through which health organisations are accountable for continually improving the quality of their services and safeguarding high standards of care by creating an environment in which excellence in clinical care will flourish.

This definition is intended to embody three key attributes: recognisably high standards of care, transparent responsibility and accountability for those standards with a constant dynamic of improvement.

In addition, our service is approved by SEQOHS (Safe Effective Quality Occupational Health Service) run by the Faculty of Occupational Medicine, which requires excellence in clinical governance to be in place for all staff. This is an external measure of how seriously we take clinical governance in OH3 and ensures we are adhering to the highest national standard for occupational health in this regard.

Occupational health provider, SEQOHS Accredited service

OH3 is fully committed to rigorous standards and provides clinical governance in the delivery of all services. Our system of supportive clinical accountability means every clinical staff member has a direct line manager who is a senior practitioner in their field, usually the Nurse Manager who in turn is directly accountable to and supported by the Clinical Director.

Training relevant to each practitioner’s practice is checked and provided on an ongoing basis and important updates delivered in regular clinical meetings. Though clinical governance is intended primarily to monitor and support clinical staff, other staff such as administrators are also covered with initial and regular training on important areas such as data confidentiality.

OH3 Ltd are proud to announce that we have received our SEQOHS accreditation certificate after our annual assessment, which is the quality accreditation from the Faculty of Occupational Medicine. Well done to all the members of our team, admin and clinical whom provide an excellent service to all our clients, small or large.
