Draft regulations for registration system in England breathe new life into clinical governance

The new registration system for health and adult social care in England is described in the post below.

Healthcare Governance Review notes that the draft regulations that will, when finalised and published, set the legal standards framework for registration, require ‘registered persons’ to have “a system of clinical governance and audit.”

According to para. 23(3) of the draft regulations, a “system of clinical governance and audit” means a framework through which the registered person endeavours continuously to –
(a) evaluate and improve the quality of the services provided; and
(b) safeguard high standards of care by creating an environment in which clinical excellence can flourish.
