Risk management done well encourages informed decision making, reduces uncertainty and leaves an organisation better prepared to handle events – both positive and negative.

The Medical Sciences Divisional risk register is reviewed regularly by the senior leadership team. The key risks identified through this process are fed back to the University, along with the other Divisions, giving clearer overall visibility of the organisation's risks.

As well as a defined risk register, risk management occurs all the time in a variety of contexts and levels: information governance, health and safety, and project management are a few examples. When embedded into decision-making and strategic aims, risk management is much more tangible.
