Risk Management Strategy
The South West Peninsula Deanery is committed to ensuring the safety of patients, trainees and staff views its risk management responsibilities as central to this commitment.
The Risk Management Strategy explains to staff, stakeholders and the public how the South West Peninsula Deanery intends to deliver its responsibilities. It covers educational, organisational and financial risk and identifies the key management objectives and responsibilities within the South West Peninsula Deanery.
The South West Peninsula Deanery will do its utmost to reduce the level of risk although it is recognised that some level of risk may be unavoidable, justified, or tolerable.
The challenge for the South West Peninsula Deanery is to reduce the potential for risks to occur by being proactive in the identification and management of risk. The underpinning principle of the Strategy is that a responsible risk management culture is developed within the Deanery that empowers all staff to make sound judgements and decisions concerning the management of risk.
