Our Executive Team provide management, leadership and support in the day to day running of Lindsey Lodge Hospice and Healthcare.
As well as their leadership roles, the following members of the Lindsey Lodge team fulfill the following regulatory and mandatory roles:
Karen Griffiths - Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO)
This is a professional who has responsibility for implementing and managing information risks within the organisation
. The SIRO role is mandatory for public sector organisations and organisations which are contracted to deliver services under the NHS Standard Contract as we do at Lindsey Lodge Hospice and Healthcare. Karen in her role has oversight of the organisational Risk Register, is responsible for the update and management of risks that report to the Board via relevant sub-committees. High risks are directly managed by the Board and are a standing agenda item at each meeting.
Lindsey Lodge Risk Register
The hospice risk register is a document that is used as a risk management tool to identify potential risks across the organisation. The managent of the risk register is to collectively identify, analyise, and solve risks before they become problems for the organisation..
The risk register serves as a central repository for the organisation's risk information and allows for the information that results from the risk management process to be suitably sorted, standardized, and merged for relevance to the appropriate level of management. The risk register is available for all staff to view and is on the Hospice network.
How to Lindsey Lodge use the Risk Register
Step 1: Identify potential risks. The first step is to identify and list all the potential risks that could delay or derail our work ,project or strategic plans..
Step 2: The risk is analysed by the SIRO as identified and categorised into High, Medium and Low risks.
Step 3: Individual response plans for each risk are made by the relevant subcommittee of the board. The full Board would manage all high risks.
Step 4: There is a lead person assigned to each risk in order to take a responsibility.
Step 5. All closed risks are archived
Step 6. The archive list is reviewed annually by the SIRO to consider themes, trends and any re-emerging risk.

She is the senior person responsible for protecting the confidentiality of people's health and care information and making sure it is used properly
