CQC Glossary of terms used in the guidance for providers and managers
The probability of an adverse event or issue occurring, which is related to a particular condition or treatment and consideration of how severe the consequences are likely to be. The risk may come directly from the condition itself or indirectly from the process or method involved in the treatment or application. Risk does not mean bad things will happen. It allows people to make decisions about the world in which they live and the choices they have to make, because it is a balanced judgement of danger.
