This guidance document sets out a high-level framework for clinical governance in health and disability services in New Zealand.

The conceptual basis for clinical governance has the consumer/patient at the centre surrounded by families/whānau, carers, health professionals, managers, governing boards, and professional and regulatory bodies, as well as central agencies such as the Health Quality & Safety Commission, the Accident Compensation Corporation and the Ministry of Health.
