Management of risk and performance: good

  • Organisations we regulate

W5. Are there clear and effective processes for managing risks, issues and performance?

Characteristics of services we would rate as good in this area

The organisation has the processes to manage current and future performance. There is an effective and comprehensive process to identify, understand, monitor and address current and future risks. Performance issues are escalated to the appropriate committees and the board through clear structures and processes. Clinical and internal audit processes function well and have a positive impact on quality governance, with clear evidence of action to resolve concerns. Financial pressures are managed so that they do not compromise the quality of care. Service developments and efficiency changes are developed and assessed with input from clinicians so that their impact on the quality of care is understood.
