Healthcare Governance

Healthcare Governance encompasses a broad range of clinical and non-clinical practices which must work interdependently to help an organisation or a care service to achieve its goals. Some of the cornerstones of healthcare governance include; board governance, operational governance, financial governance, culture, risk management and controls, strategy, structures – none of which can exist in isolation.
