In the NHS, corporate governance can be defined as:
“… the systems and processes by which health bodies lead, direct and control their functions, in order to achieve organisational objectives and by which they relate to their partners and wider community.” (Audit Commission, Corporate Governance in Health Organisations, 2002)
Effective corporate governance, along with clinical governance, is essential for NHS organisations to achieve its clinical, quality and financial objectives.
