The Department has asked that your analysis illustrate the likelihood of risks occurring and the scale of their impact, as well as your approach to managing the risks you have identified by completing the table below.
Risk Impact L C R Risk treatments Responsibility

L = Likelihood (Almost certain, Likely, Possible, Rare)
C = Consequence (Very High, High, Medium, low)
R = Risk level (12-16 = Extreme, 5-11 = Moderate, 1-4 = Low)
When considering the risks, think about the impacts on the various components of the health system, as well as the impact on providers and patients, including vulnerable populations. Consider how core principles of public health
