Clinical governance under the spotlight

The HSE has agreed to Fórsa’s demand for a union-management assessment group to ensure that effective clinical governance in health and social care professions is maintained in new community health structures currently being tested in pilot ‘network learning sites.’

There will also be joint feedback groups in each of the nine sites.

The development came after the union’s head of health Éamonn Donnelly (pictured) insisted the process was necessary to ensure that senior health and social care professional (HSCP) managers maintained a “direct input into line management” in the professions.
