Quality Governance: How does a board know that its organisation is working effectively to improve patient care? – Monitor – 22 April 2013

“Overview of guidance

This guidance has been developed to support the Quality Governance Framework and its samples of good practice and does not seek to replace it.

In particular, this guidance should support NHS foundation trusts in making the Corporate Governance Statement required under our new licence conditions.

It can also support aspirant NHS foundation trusts in making their board statement on quality governance as part of Monitor’s assessment process.

It is particularly relevant and timely in the context of the Report of the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry which was published in February 2013. Its recommendations highlight the importance of quality governance and quality assurance arrangements within the NHS.”
