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 Standards.
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.
