Risk management

Risk management is integral to the sound governance of any organisation. Effective identification, evaluation, and management ensure all types of risk are considered across all areas of an organisation and its customers. 

Risk management is best delivered using a structured approach to ensure that all areas of risk, including clinical, organisational, and financial are considered in planning and delivering services.

Risk refers to uncertainty, the possibility of incurring misfortune or loss or missing opportunities. This is measured in terms of the likelihood of something happening and the impact of the possible consequences.  A risk may be looked upon as anything which has the potential to damage or threaten the achievement of the organisation’s objectives.
