Key Points to Note:
The BAF was presented to the Board in May for approval since then it has been loaded into the performance accelerator system. In July the NHS White Paper was published the BAF has been revised to reflect Board level risks in the light of content of the white paper.
Budget Implications: Risk Assessment:
None identified Level of risk for each objective has been determined but overall the risks identified are potential high risk areas which if the controls in place are ineffective have the potential to impact on the delivery of the PCTâ€™s strategic plans. The Board is aware of its key risks and can monitor them and ensure appropriate controls and mitigating actions are undertaken to ensure effective commissioning and delivery of services.
Risk assessment and review is a core activity that is carried out as part of Board subcommittee work, updating and reporting on the performance accelerator system. SMT continues to review the BAF on a monthly basis.
Good risk management systems support equality impact assessment.
