    Abstract

    The New NHS (Department of Health 1997) and A First Class Service (Department of Health 1998) set out the Government's strategy for ensuring that quality of care becomes the driving force for the development of health services, with cliinical governance being the central mechanism for making this strategy happen. Clinical governance is defined as 'a framework through which NHS organisations are accountable for continuously improving the quality of their services' (Department of Health 1998, p33). Sealey (1999, p246) clarified this as including 'the use of evidence-based practice, standards for practice, clinical guidelines, clinical audit, complaints procedures, risk management, incorporating clients' views, training and continued professional development'.
