The Opportunity

Having effective arrangements and controls in place for processes surrounding decision making, finance, risk and quality is crucial for the health and care sector to proactively manage and maintain high standards of delivery and safe practice. The statutory changes affecting ICS arrangements and the introduction of ICBs add an extra level of complexity for systems, places and organisations to consider.
