Clinical Board

The role of the clinical board is to give expert advice and exhibit leadership on clinical matters. The clinical board is the key Patient Safety body for South Canterbury DHB, and as such has direct links with senior operational management and reports directly to the Board. The clinical board monitors clinical practice and patient safety initiatives across the organisation, identifies areas where an improvement focus is required. The board also receives, and where appropriate, supports new initiatives that will improve clinical practice and patient safety.

Who is the Clinical Board made up of?

Members of the clinical board include representatives from clinical groups across the organisation including nursing, allied health, pharmacy, medical, and cultural representatives.
