The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has published its ‘National Health Service Landscape Review’ – click here.
A helpful summary of the PAC report has been written by Dr Allan Tennant on the website of the Dispensing Doctors’ Association. In his summary, Dr Tennant states that “Establishing strong, effective systems of governance and clear lines of assurance and accountability supported by robust flows of information will be key to ensuring that public money is safeguarded.” He also states that “High quality risk management will be crucial if the change programme is to be delivered to time and budget and to realise its intended benefits, especially during the transition stage.”
Healthcare Governance Review has no doubt that good governance and risk management continue to be essential pre-requisites for building and maintaining successful NHS (and wider public sector) organisations.
