Risk Appetite Statement
The Christie NHS Foundation Trust recognises that its long-term sustainability depends upon the delivery of its strategic objectives and its relationships with patients, staff, the public and strategic partners. It operates within a low overall risk range. It will not accept risks that have a likelihood of a detrimental impact on patient or staff safety or compliance and regulatory objectives.
However, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust has a marginally higher risk appetite to take considered risks in terms of its impact on the strategic, reporting and operations objectives in terms of its willingness to take opportunities where positive gains can be anticipated, within the constraints of the regulatory environment. The highest risk appetite relates to our pursuance of innovation and transformation objectives.
