Clinical Governance

The FOM does not manage any of the doctors with whom it has a prescribed connection. There is therefore no way for the RO to ensure that there is effective clinical governance in place for the doctors about whom he is responsible for.

Designated bodies such as NHS Trusts, or indeed an OH company, have direct ‘line of sight’ over those revalidating through their RO and have clearly publicised clinical governance standards.

To address this the RO and the Society of Occupational Medicine have worked together to create a FOM Appraisee Clinical Governance Questionnaire and a FOM Appraiser Statutory questionnaire. These documents can be downloaded from the resources [1] page alongside other helpful guides.
