What’s the right level of risk?

1 July 2022

July 2022 sees the beginning of a new era. Senior leaders across the public sector have the opportunity to do things differently, to collaborate and to put their communities first.

Arranging and delivering local health and care services requires responsible planning, shared leadership, joint commissioning and integrated service delivery.

While providing opportunities, a move to place-based partnerships can come with a level of risk. For example:

  • risks associated with multi-agency decision-making, leading to potential reputational damage
  • risks identifying, securing and sourcing the appropriate employee skills, now and in the future
  • risks associated with financial investment and jointly managed funds.

In this on-demand webinar our procurement, health and social care and risk experts will discuss ‘what’s the right level of risk’. They also discuss what can be done to mitigate risk.
