• A review of governance of maternity services at South Tipperary general hospital

      Flory, David (Health Service Executive (HSE), 2015-09)
      This review of the governance of maternity services at South Tipperary General Hospital has focussed on the systems and processes for assurance of service quality, risk management and patient safety primarily inside the hospital but also in the Hospital Group structure within which it operates. The effectiveness of the governance arrangements is largely determined by the quality of the leadership and management – both clinical and general – which designs, implements, and oversees those systems and processes and is ultimately responsible and accountable. The conclusions and recommendations are, therefore, as much about the capacity and capabilities of the leadership and management teams as the governance structures that they operate.
