Clinical Governance

Our Clinical Governance framework ensures that robust standards & processes are in place for governance and risk management purposes.

Home » Clinical Governance

Any organisation that provides first aid or casualty care to the general public or their own employees on a regular basis must ensure that a robust Clinical Governance Framework exists.

As an organisation you cannot simply outsource your Clinical Governance to an external provider as with an insurance policy, as the responsibility and duty of
care for providing a safe and effective casualty care service lies with your organisation.

The ATACC Group are unique in our understanding of this principle. We also appreciate that organisations that are not primarily healthcare providers will often not have the skills or knowledge readily available internally to design, implement and clinically support a robust clinical governance framework in the long term.

Clinical Governance

Fire & Rescue

Transformational change and the developing role of the modern Fire & Rescue
service demands the highest standards of Clinical Governance to ensure safety
and quality of care.

As Fire & Rescue Services develop and extend their trauma and casualty care skills for both their traditional role and the new challenges of transformational change it must be supported by robust Clinical Governance.

Such Governance extends far beyond simple oversight of training but ensures safe and effective quality standards of delivery and provision for improvements in quality and performance. These are all essential for a modern fire and rescue service wishing to engage and work with health and social care providers.

Clinical Governance

Police

Implementing Clinical Governance within your Police Force is an opportunity to pro-actively mitigate risk, improve operational quality & efficiency.

As a Chief Constable, Senior Police Officer or official you will no doubt be aware of the challenges facing your force in these modern times. Remaining committed to delivering an effective Police service in accordance with local policing plans whilst dealing with the
 reality of the financial challenges.

Despite these challenges there are continuing demands on the forces time and resources to provide services such as first aid and casualty care to the general public. Increasingly, Police officers are attending to injured and seriously ill people. These individuals may be victims of crime, have been hurt during police operations or your officers may be responding to a request for support to other emergency services such as the ambulance service.

Providing this operational function comes at a cost
 and carries significant risks. With some foresight and new thinking however this situation offers a potential opportunity to make efficiency savings whilst improving the quality of the service and providing greater control over the associated risk.

UK businesses are legally bound to protect their employees, third parties and members of the public who may be affected by their work activities.

This can be a challenge specifically if your organsiation’s activities are potential risks to health. Many organisations are unaware of the risk associated with providing first aid care. However, these risks can have significant legal and moral consequences if they are not proactively managed.
