What is Clinical Governance and who needs it?

There are numerous definitions of Clinical Governance, but that which we prefer in LIVES is “a system through which organisations are accountable for continuously improving the quality of their services and safeguarding high standards of care by creating an environment in which clinical excellence will flourish”

The Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care, Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh state that any organisation or individual providing care above First Aid at Work must be operating within a framework of Clinical Governance and CPD. This includes Levels C through to H on the Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) skills framework.

Why choose LIVES?

LIVES is a Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered provider of Education, Clinical Governance and Response in pre-hospital emergency medicine.

LIVES is almost 50 years old and has steadily grown from a GP accident service in 1970 to a Lincolnshire-wide provider of both Community First Responders (CFRs) and Medical First Responders (MFRs) responding to medical and trauma emergencies for East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS).

We have extensive expertise in the delivery of clinical care at medical and trauma emergencies, and in the development and deployment of a clinical governance framework that ensures that all such care is safe and effective.

Many providers will offer a “standard” package of Clinical Governance that is generic to all settings. LIVES believes that the Clinical Governance for an organisation should be based on sound principles but should be bespoke for the needs of the organisation.
