 This module focuses on the Business Risks and Governance issues that regularly arise in medical practice - they are often difficult to deal with.  We will focus on how to create competitive, collaborative and commercial advantage for the GP Practice through an understanding of the Risks and Governance issues relevant to General Practice.  The module will be delivered as an interactive session with practical guidance to enabling participants to map the techniques onto their own risk and governance profile for their practice.  The Tips on managing risk provide useful guidance to enable participants to understand and mitigate the governance requirements, liabilities and risks within General Practice.  Group work is provided on all aspects of the programme so that participants develop their understanding of the topics by interacting with colleagues.



participants will improve their understanding of the Risk and Governance responsibilities.  The module will demonstrate how adopting industry practiced due diligence techniques will help to mitigate risks and will also help with all aspects of practice governance and compliance.
