Risk assurance committee and quality committee
Risk assurance committee
The overall aim and purpose of the risk assurance committee is to seek and provide assurance to the board that its responsibilities in relation to management of risk and control are appropriately discharged. It will review the establishment and maintenance of an effective system of integrated governance, risk management and internal control, across the whole of the organisation’s activities (both clinical and non-clinical), that supports the achievement of the organisation’s objectives. It will ensure appropriate policies are in place to demonstrate regulatory, legal and code of conduct compliance.
The risk assurance committee will have no executive powers other than those delegated in these terms of reference and as outlined in standing financial instructions, standing orders and schemes of delegation.
The role of the quality sub-committee will be to assure the Board that appropriate quality of education commissioning and education outcomes are being monitored, maintained and improved by Health Education England's South London local team and those findings are fed into future strategy and planning as appropriate. This shall include providing assurance that an appropriate quality framework is in place that meets and exceeds the requirements of the education outcomes framework. The sub-committee will be directly accountable to the board and will be chaired by a non-executive director of the board.
