Myles Bradbury: Clues missed over paedophile doctor
According to the BBC,
Acting chief executive of Cambridge University Hospitals Foundation Trust is quoted as saying:
Clinical governance and whistleblowing
We recommend NHS and private healthcare provider regularly review their clinical governance provisions, systems, processes, standards, and the extent to which these are part of daily life for staff on wards. Our extensive experience in this field ranges from supporting hospitals to establish their clinical governance provisions through to investigating and making recommendations for improvement when things have gone wrong. We also regularly support trusts in their preparations for HM Coroner’s court hearings in the event of fatalities.
The importance of proving recognisably high standards of care, transparent responsibility and accountability for those standards, and a constant dynamic of improvement within your organisation means that well-understood and adhered to clinical governance frameworks and practices are essential, as are effective whistleblowing arrangements.
