About Emergency Planning
NHS Emergency Planning aims to take account of all reasonable contingency measures to ensure a response to any accident, natural disaster or hostile act posing any threat to the health of the community or in the provision of services.
It is practicable therefore to adopt an “All Hazards” approach, providing one framework for response, with in-built flexibility to meet any increase in the scale or duration of a crisis.
Most people think of incidents as the conventional ‘big-bang’ major incidents, eg transport accidents or explosions, but these are only part of the range of events that could have a substantial impact on the health of the public or health services.
