Human tissue governance?

The latest in a long line of ‘governances’ in healthcare appears to be ‘human tissue governance.’

The Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Trust, the largest heart and lung centre in the UK, currently has a vacancy for a Human Tissue Governance Manager.

According to the advert posted in the trust is looking for “a suitably qualified person to promote and ensure compliance with the Human Tissue Act and the Trust’s licensing arrangements with the HTA [Human Tissue Authority].”

Further, the advert mentions that “The post holder should have a scientific or clinical research background and be fully conversant with the provisions of the Human Tissue Act in particular with regard to the use of human samples for research and education. The post holder will also be familiar with audit processes to monitor compliance. With proven interpersonal and communication skills you must be used to working in a busy office and be adaptable to a changing environment.”

The full advert can be found here.

Healthcare Governance Review invites readers to answer the following poll question.
