FSRH Service Standards for Risk Management in Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare - Oct 2017

20 October 2017

Risk Management is an approach to improving the quality and safety of health care by identifying circumstances that put patients and staff at risk and acting to prevent or control those risks. The overall aim of any risk management strategy is to make the effective management of risk part of everyday practice. This can only be achieved if there is a comprehensive and cohesive framework in place, underpinned by clear accountability arrangements across the organisation.

Maintaining Good Medical Practice

01 March 2001

It has always been a professional responsibility to provide the highest standard of care within the community. However, recently, doctors within the United Kingdom are expected to be able to demonstrate their fitness to practice within clinical governance and revalidation. In line with other professional groups and particularly in line with the Colleges and Faculties with whom we work - the RCOG, the RCGP and the Faculty of Public Health Medicine - it is important for us to demonstrate the elements of maintaining good medical practice within our specialist areas.
