    On which intranet page do you find more information about the Clinical Governance Policy?

    • A.

      Superintendent Pharmacist

    • B.

      Medical Affairs

    • C.

      L&D

    • D.

      Supply Chain

    Correct Answer
    A. Superintendent Pharmacist
    Explanation
    The Superintendent Pharmacist page is the most likely place to find more information about the Clinical Governance Policy because the policy would directly relate to the responsibilities and duties of the pharmacist in ensuring the safety and quality of pharmaceutical services. Medical Affairs may also have some information about the policy, but it would likely be more focused on medical procedures and protocols rather than specifically addressing the governance aspect. L&D and Supply Chain are less likely to have information about the policy as it is not directly related to their areas of expertise.

This includes setting standards, measuring performance against those standards, and taking action to continuously improve the quality of services provided. Thus, the answer "Accountability to improve the quality of services" accurately describes the concept of Clinical Governance.

    Correct Answer
    D. An acknowledgement of the complaint is given to the patient
    Explanation
    On the day a complaint is received, it is important to provide an acknowledgement of the complaint to the patient. This is necessary to show that their complaint has been received and is being taken seriously. It helps to establish open communication and trust between the patient and the healthcare provider. Additionally, providing an acknowledgement allows the patient to feel heard and understood, which can contribute to a more positive resolution of the complaint.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of the following does not have to occur for a complaint to be closed?

    • A.

      All investigations and communications have been recorded

    • B.

      The complaint is 'upheld' or 'not upheld' by a Line Manager

    • C.

      Disciplinary action is taken against the person who the complaint was made against

    • D.

      Corrective and Preventive measures must be in place

    Correct Answer
    C. Disciplinary action is taken against the person who the complaint was made against
    Explanation
    For a complaint to be closed, all investigations and communications must be recorded to ensure transparency and accountability. The complaint being 'upheld' or 'not upheld' by a Line Manager is necessary to determine the validity of the complaint and take appropriate actions. Corrective and preventive measures must be in place to address the issues raised in the complaint and prevent similar incidents in the future. However, disciplinary action against the person the complaint was made against is not a requirement for closing a complaint. It may be one possible outcome of the investigation, but it is not necessary for the complaint to be considered closed.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Complaints are dealt with within a month of their receipt." This is not a requirement of the NHS complaint policy because there is no specific timeline mentioned for dealing with complaints. The other options are requirements of the policy, such as treating complaints with respect and courtesy, informing the person making the complaint about the investigation outcome, and taking necessary action based on the complaint.

    • A.

      Approach the person who has behaved inappropriately

    • B.

      Report directly to Danone Group Management using Dialert System

    • C.

      Call the police

    • D.

      Ignore the situation

    Correct Answer
    B. Report directly to Danone Group Management using Dialert System
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to report directly to Danone Group Management using the Dialert System. This option is the most appropriate because it ensures that the whistleblower's concerns are brought to the attention of the company's management, who can then take appropriate action. Approaching the person who has behaved inappropriately may not always be effective or safe. Calling the police may be necessary in certain situations, but it is not specifically mentioned in the context of the Danone Conduct Policy. Ignoring the situation is not a responsible or ethical course of action.
