Chief Nurse Secondary Care, Quality and Governance

Lesley Boler, chief nurse secondary care at Practice Plus GroupI am keen to ensure that clinical care, governance and associated assurance processes are in line with CQC requirements are not merely a paper exercise and that quality is the foundation of all health care services and clinical practice. Good practice should be the norm and not exceptional whilst recognising good practice I do not endorse poor practice within the clinical workforce. I am actively involved in maintaining the key requirements mandated by key regulatory bodies such as CQC and NICE.

I have been awarded the Queen’s Nurse. I fully support the Queen’s Nursing Institute core values and these integrate into my approach to Nursing with the need to develop a quality and safe service at all times.

I am the ‘quality governance business partner’ to the service line Managing Director and supporting him to deliver high quality patient care in a safe environment which promotes an open culture and a learning environment.

I work closely with the service line Medical Director to ensure a joined up approach to quality governance and that matters relating to clinical and information governance are resolved to support good practice by all clinicians.

I am the Executive Safeguarding lead for Secondary Care and reports to the Board on all matters relating to Safeguarding.
