The Civil Contingencies Act (CCA) 2004 and Civil Contingencies Act (Contingency Planning) (Scotland) Regulations 2005 place a clear obligation on Category 1 and 2 responders within NHSScotland to respond to disruptive challenges and ensure that they are sufficiently resilient to respond to any threat.
The aim of emergency and resilience planning within NHSScotland is to ensure that essential health care needs are met effectively when normal services become overloaded, restricted or non-operational for whatever reason.
Business Continuity Management is embedded within Resilience and is vital to ensure expectations of service are continuously met.
