Staff Governance

Staff Governance is a term which describes the framework for managing employees inside NHS Scotland. The commitments surrounding the framework, are in place to ensure all staff have a positive experience at work, where they feel motivated and engaged with their role, team and the Board.

National Staff Governance information can be found at

Staff Governance is defined as:

“a system of corporate accountability for the fair and effective management of all staff”

Staff Governance can be measured through assurance that the Staff Governance Standard commitments are being met, and this is assessed locally via the Staff Governance Committee of each Board.

The Staff Governance Standard sets out what each NHSScotland employer must achieve in order to continuously improve in relation to the fair and effective management of staff. Click on the links for more information.

The Staff Governance Committee (SGC) is a standing committee of each NHS Board which, together with the Clinical Governance Committee and Audit Committee, forms the full governance framework for NHS Boards.
