Clinical governance is the way the NHS works to improve the quality of care patients receive and to maintain that high quality of care. Clinical governance is the responsibility of every member of NHS staff to ensure that patients receive the best possible care.
The Pharmacy Performance, Quality and Safety (PQS) Team support this wider governance agenda by reviewing governance issues related to pharmacy and medicines management.
'The treatment I have received from all the staff has been
excellent and could you extend my thanks to them all. A very
thankful and relieved patient'.
