What is clinical governance?

Clinical Governance in Western Australia is the mechanism by which hospitals are held accountable for:

  • ensuring high standards of health care
  • continuous improvement of service quality
  • creating and maintaining an environment that supports clinical excellence

In September 2001, the Department of Health finalised a new model for Clinical Governance for development and implementation in hospitals and health services across the Western Australian public health system.
