Clinical Governance

Our Clinical Governance framework and policy is in-line with the Healthcare Commission, Chartered Society of Physiotherapy Code of Conduct and Health and Care Professions Council guidelines and underpins everything that we do and is driven by our Governance Team.

Clinical governance is defined as:
"A framework through which healthcare organisations are accountable for continually improving the quality of their services and safeguarding high standards of care by creating an environment in which excellence in clinical care will flourish."

There are three key attributes to clinical governance:

  1. Recognisably high standards of care
  2. Transparent responsibility and accountability for those standards
  3. A constant dynamic of improvement

Clinical governance refers to the structures, processes and systems in place in an organisation to manage the quality of service provision. This framework needs to be appropriate to each organisation, and this policy sets out the Physio Med approach.

There are seven key elements to clinical governance, which are outlined below, along with the mechanisms in use in the company/Network to deliver each of the elements, and the expectations that are placed on partners, clinicians and staff within the company/Network:

  1. Education and training
  2. Clinical audit
  3. Clinical effectiveness
  4. Openness
  5. Risk Management
  6. Information management
  7. Human resources

Clinical Governance in Physio Med is central to all our working practices across the whole business and it allows us to guarantee our Values are in place and Standards are always high.

In order to continue to provide physiotherapy services to our clients past, present and future, we are now offering an alternative provision in the form of a Telehealth service, which will allow patients to speak to senior physiotherapists for advice, motivation and recommendations of techniques to help manage their conditions.

Remote DSE Assessments

Physio Med’s video link DSE assessment has been developed to provide an effective method of assessing an employee’s ‘at home’ workstation without the need for a physio visit in person.

Designed to reduce pain, improve range of movement, and to recover from injury quickly and safely.
