Governance Support

Governance Support

Well governed organisations have clear strategic intents, systems to monitor progress, clear decision-making processes and engage with their staff as well as their consumers. 

Good governance includes a conceptual structure that identifies clear objectives, accountabilities and communication processes.

The approach used by the team at Integrating Care Consultancy when working with organisations is to closely listen to and understand the organisations mission, vision and values and understand governance structure, systems and processes. The team then explores the issues that the organisation is seeking assistance with resolving.

The consultancy offers a range of experience and we work collaboratively with our clients to:
