Introduction to Resilience in the NHS – Onsite Bespoke Training

How will this workshop benefit me?

This is a half or one day training workshop, delivered on your premises to your staff, aimed at all levels, the trainer will work with you to deliver a bespoke workshop tailored to you needs!

The NHS needs to plan for and respond to a wide range of incidents and emergencies that could affect health or patient care. These could be anything from severe weather to an infectious disease outbreak or a major transport accident or indeed a terrorist attack.

Under Civil Contingencies Act (2004), NHS organisations and subcontractors must show that they can deal with these incidents while maintaining services to patients. This work is referred to in the health community as “emergency preparedness resilience and response” (EPRR)

This bespoke workshop will be designated to your specific needs but can cover:

  • Where to start – Developing a Business Impact Analysis (BIA)
  • Business Continuity and Risk Management
  • Establishing the maximum tolerable periods of disruption, recovery time objective and recovery point objectives
  • Crisis and Incident Management – the concept of the “worse case scenario”
  • The importance of suppliers, critical products and systems
  • Developing the Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and action cards
  • Testing and Exercising the BCP
  • Incident Management
  • Maintaining and reviewing the BCP
  • Embedding business continuity in the organisation’s culture

Did you know? NHS organisations and providers of NHS funded care must be able to maintain continuous levels in key services when faced with disruption. Business continuity management (BCM) gives organisations a framework for identifying and managing risk that could disrupt service. An organisation’s business continuity management system helps it to anticipate, prepare for, prevent, respond to and recover from disruptions, whatever their source and whatever part of the business they affect. This training is specifically aimed at those managers who are responsible for resilience planning but who require some short term targeted support within their organisations.

“Membership of the NPAG Resilience Development Network has proved to be really good value for money at around £xx. What I was able to take away from the meetings in terms of time saving ideas, resources, lessons learned and really helpful information must have saved my trust this sum of money several times over. There is not question for me that membership is beneficial for the trust as well as my own personal development”
