Corporate governance

Medical Advisory Committee

Our Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) allows consultants from every specialist area to represent themselves at the clinic.

We believe it’s important that everyone can change London Medical for the better, so within our MAC, there are a number of ways that each consultant can communicate their ideas. Really, it has two main purposes:

  • overseeing, representing and advising us on professional issues related to medical practitioner activities
  • ensuring quality patient care through the clinical governance framework.

The functions of the MAC include:

  • Advise on granting practising privileges to medical applicants in line with our policy.
  • Advise on the suitability of new techniques.
  • Oversee and approve the clinic’s clinical governance and quality strategy.
  • Management of all aspects of Clinical Governance namely, Clinical Risk Management, Effectiveness & Audit, Performance Management, Patient Satisfaction

    • Agree priorities of clinical audit and outcome measurement.
    • Confirm that any research projects within the clinic have appropriate regulatory and ethical approval.
