Claudine Dental Practice - St Cirencester

Clinical Governance

The topic of our practice meeting last month was clinical governance. Here at CGDP, we strive to continuously improve the quality of our service and deliver a consistent standard of care for our patients.

Our clinical governance policy follows the Department of Health’s framework, adapted for primary dental care and focuses on aspects concerning:

  • the practice team
  • our patients
  • practice safety
  • clinical issues.

Clinical governance is about managing quality and developing practice management systems to help us track our progress by:

  • knowing what is supposed to be done, how it should be done and knowing who it is supposed to be done by
  • being able to show that it has been done in the right way every time
  • learning from mistakes to prevent them from happening again.
