Clinical governance has been identified as a key area of interest for primary care groups, according to publisher Binleys. Its latest Database of Primary Care says clinical governance committees are the most developed aspect of PCGs' structure, followed by prescribing, information technology and commissioning. The majority of committee members are GPs. Community nurses make up 4.5 per cent of committee members and practice nurses 1.8 per cent.
