Governance

At Addaction, we are fully committed to continued improvement so that we consistently offer the best to our service users, staff and stakeholders. We achieve this by using a framework of quality assurance and by employing a team to oversee all of our quality and clinical governance matters.

Addaction's culture of learning means that Addaction’s staff are always on top of the most up-to-date reports, teaching and information. It means we adapt to new methods of supporting our service users both quickly and effectively.

In addition the team and system works in conjunction with local services and commissioners to allow local priorities and needs to be met. Addaction's governance team and system is overviewed by our Board of Trustees, who are then supported by a Quality and Clinical Governance Directorate to ensure that accountability is both achieved and monitored.

Our governance framework is compliant with a range of regulatory requirements and best practice guidance, such as that of the Care Quality Commission, the Scottish Care Inspectorate (including the underlining legislation), National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN), Public Health England and Health Scotland.
