Sengkang General Hospital Clinical Governance
Safety, Quality, Standards

Clinical Governance refers to the collective activity of monitoring and reviewing the quality of patient care, with the aim of continuous and sustainable improvement. In Sengkang General Hospital, Clinical Governance is founded upon our organisational mission and vision: to enrich the quality of life in the North-east by assisting in the delivery of holistic, informed and reassuring care in the community.

The Hospital Ethics Committee (HEC) assists in resolving ethical conflicts and issues affecting the management of patients. It seeks to support patient's autonomy and choice at times of treatment uncertainty. The HEC comprises clinicians, nurses, allied health professionals, GP partners, academics, ethicists and law professionals, hence ensuring that a multitude of perspectives have been considered when putting forth recommendations.
