Decision details

Corporate Risk and Opportunity Register Quarter 3

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: No


Paul Bond, Head of Legal and Democratic Services, presented the quarter 3 corporate risk and opportunity register and highlighted the following areas for comments:


·  Corporate risk (CR)13 – increase in demand for Children's Social Care had been added to the register due to an increase in referrals.

·  CR14 – intermediate care for older people in a residential setting had also been added. The council was looking at best practice to address this and would be developing a joint action plan with the NHS.

·  CR9 – discharge of patients from hospital into their own home or enablement/short term care in a safe and timely manner had been deleted as performance had improved and targets were being met.

·  Changes to the level of risk in other areas of the plan were also outlined along with the reasons for change.


Members expressed thanks to the Adult Services team for the work committed to ensure the removal of risk CR9 from the register.


In response to  questions  from members, officers clarified that the council was reviewing the funding structure in order to develop the apprenticeship strategy to achieve the most effective results and that proposals would be brought forward in due course.


Resolved: That the report now presented be noted.
