Under the Civil Contingencies Act (2004), ‘category one’ responders, including:
- NHS Acute Trusts
- NHS Ambulance NHS Trusts
- NHS Public Health England
must show that they are working with other responders to:
- Assess risks
- Develop and maintain plans
- Share information and co-operate on civil contingency response
and that they can manage incidents events while maintaining services to patients.
NHS England Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response (EPRR) guidance sets out how NHS England service providers must prepare for and respond to incidents which threaten the delivery of key services.
