Clinical Governance

At Healthier Weight patient safety is our first priority. We are committed to applying the highest standards of care, in support of this we have established a robust clinical governance structure. The basis of this structure is a clinical governance committee that meets regularly to review patient outcomes and ensure that we are constantly reviewing our care pathways in light of the latest data and best practice. 

Our governance committee brings together experienced medical professionals from all of the areas of expertise that are required to deliver a safe and effective weight loss service to patients. In addition to attending Clinical Governance meetings, they contribute to the development and management of patient care policies and processes in their areas of expertise.
