• Risk management e-learning

    6 November 2017

    The media is full of stories involving serious problems that have suddenly struck particular enterprises. The cause may be external and beyond the organisation’s control (such as a natural disaster) or internal (such as a failure to comply with regulations, or issues with quality control).

    Whatever the cause, you are left to wonder why top management were not aware of the possibility so that they could take evasive action – or at least be in a position to react quickly and positively when the problem arose.

Dr Tracey Vell, an LMC chief executive and associate lead of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, the organisation in control of the region’s £6bn budget, told a recent PCC event: “General practice is driving new models of care and local care organisations. Primary care is now increasingly viewed as the core component of an integrated, community based care system rather than a separate standalone entity.” See the PCC website for the full story: http://bit.ly/2yyOJ2I
