Risk Summits provide a mechanism to bring the health and care system together very quickly when a serious, specific concern about the quality of care has been raised. Like Quality Surveillance Groups (see above), they are an important tool within the wider quality framework set out in the NQB’s Shared Commitment to Quality. They should only be called very occasionally. This document provides practical advice and guidance about how to run an effective Risk Summit.
