The research found that customer satisfaction, service delivery certainty, customer involvement, service quality reliability, health and safety are highly rated by the NHS executives. The paper classifies healthcare related risk constructs into seven elements namely: customer care, corporate, legal, commercial finance and economics, business transfer, and facilities transmitted
