NHS Scotland updates its ‘Staff Governance’ standard

The NHS in Scotland has for several years led the way in best practice in ‘human resources management’ in healthcare with its approach to ‘staff governance’.  Staff governance is defined as ‘a system of corporate accountability for the fair and effective management of all staff” and ‘makes up the third pillar of the governance framework (alongside clinical and financial governance) within which [the NHS in Scotland] must operate.’ The 3rd and latest edition of the NHS Scotland Staff Governance Standard for NHSScotland employees can be downloaded at: http://openscotland.gov.uk/Resource/Doc/179320/0051009.pdf
