An Introduction to Clinical Governance and Patient Safety

This chapter discusses the NICE IP (interventional procedures) Programme, which is intended to introduce new interventional procedures safely into the NHS. The basic requirements for achieving this remain the same as they were when it was formally established by the Department of Health in 2003: where there are uncertainties about the evidence on a new interventional procedure, clinicians should take special care to inform their trust clinical governance lead that they are planning to undertake it, tell the patient about those uncertainties, audit and publicize their results.

Keywords:   NICE, interventional procedures, National Healthcare System, diagnosis, treatment
