Staff Governance

Staff Governance is a term which describes the framework for managing employees inside NHS Scotland.

There are 5 Staff Governance Standards (or commitments) and they are that employees should be:

  1. Well informed;
  2. Appropriately trained and developed;
  3. Involved in decisions;
  4. Treated fairly and consistently, with dignity and respect, in an environment where diversity is valued; and,
  5. Provided with a continuously improving and safe working environment, promoting the health and wellbeing of staff, patients and the wider community.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has a Staff Governance Committee which is co-chaired by Alan Cowan (Non-Executive Director) and Dorothy McErlean (Employee Director) and reviews how the Board is complying with these five commitments.

The Staff Governance Committee meets 4 times per year to review and discuss Board-wide activity, which is underway to support and comply with the Staff Governance Standards. As part of each Committee meeting, 2 Directorates/HSCPs are invited to present to the Committee, to provide assurance that structures and processes are in place to meet the Standards.
