Governance & Scrutiny Committee (GSC)

The purpose of the Governance & Scrutiny Committee (GSC) is to ensure that the Board fulfils its legal, ethical, and functional responsibilities through adequate governance policy development, and to assist the Board in shaping the culture and ethical values of the Academy through overseeing and advising on conduct, reputation, community, people and financial matters.

GSC monitors the performance of the Academy; measures departments’ success with service delivery and financial targets and is also responsible for dealing with Academy decisions that have been called into question.

The GSC also monitors the performance of the HCS Registration Council and contracted third party organisations, including the Academy’s Partners.
