Risk Management Strategy

The Peninsula Postgraduate Medical Education is committed to ensuring the safety of patients, trainees and staff views its risk management responsibilities as central to this commitment.

Our Health Education South West Risk Management Procedures explain to staff, stakeholders and the public how the Peninsula Postgraduate Medical Education should deliver its responsibilities. It covers educational, organisational and financial risk and identifies the key management objectives and responsibilities within the Peninsula Postgraduate Medical Education and other areas of Health Education South West.

The Peninsula Postgraduate Medical Education 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 Peninsula Postgraduate Medical Education is to reduce the potential for risks to occur by being proactive in the identification and management of risk. The underpinning principle of the Procedures is that a responsible risk management culture is developed that empowers all staff to make sound judgements and decisions concerning the management of risk.

The Risk Management Strategy is currently under review and will be made available in due course.
