REDHS enhance clinical governance from VHA award

Posted 30 August 2017

Rochester and Elmore District Health Service evaluated its clinical governance last week – thanks to Russell Kennedy Lawyers and the VHA.

The health service won last year’s inaugural VHA award for Innovation in Governance, which included a clinical governance session facilitated by commercial and health sector lawyer Michael Gorton AM.

They used the prize to great effect last week. REDHS hosted a breakfast meeting for its board and executive team for a tailored program on the new Victorian Government Clinical Governance Framework, issues arising following the Duckett Report and proposed government legislative changes.

REDHS CEO Anne McEvoy said that the session was an excellent initiative supporting the Board to lead safe care.

“I congratulate the VHA on introducing this award category in 2016 and look forward to sharing our experience with future award winners,” she said this week.
