8 13. Risk 13.1 Where a Business Impact assessment raises a risk to the trust this must be dealt with in accordance with the NHS West Sussex Risk Management Strategy, Policy and Procedures. 14. Business Continuity Management System 14.1 The Business Continuity Management System used by NHS West Sussex is aligned with BS NHS :2009 1, BS NHS : and PAS 2015: The Business Continuity Cycle (See Figure 1) forms the basis of the business continuity management system, this sets out the five stages of the system. Understanding the organisation Determining BCM Strategy Developing and implementing BCM response Exercising, maintaining and reviewing Embedding BCM in the organisational culture Figure 1 The Business Continuity Management Lifecycle Understanding the organisation This involves anticipating what the organisation may face (horizon scanning) gaining an awareness of new threats or hazards and assessing those threats and hazards identified by using the business impact assessment tool (see Appendix 1). The business impact assessment will identify risks to the organisation these must be listed on the Directorates responsible risk register where treatment actions to prevent or mitigate the effects of the risk established. This will form the strategy for each business continuity impact raised. 6 BSi, BS NHS Business Continuity Management Part 2: Specification. Page 8 of 15

9 14.4 Determining the Business Continuity Management Strategy Determining the business continuity management strategy enables the assessor to consider a range of strategies:- Do nothing, if the likelihood and impact are so low that no action is required. Apply a range of actions, technical, practical, procedural or organisational to prevent or mitigate the impact. Prepare a business continuity plan to implement Insure against the impact 14.5 Develop and Implement a Business Continuity Management Response Developing and Implementing a Business Continuity Management Response will result in the creation of a business continuity plan which a management structure and detailed steps to take to respond should the identified business continuity disruption occur. These plans will be organisation wide as in an overarching business continuity plan or Directorate specific in a directorate and team business continuity plan. Plans must include the level at which critical services will be recovered within the maximum tolerable period of disruption, and the resources required for this to be achieved 14.6 Exercising, Maintaining and reviewing To successfully implement a business continuity plan at either level the plan must be exercised so that those responsible or affected by the plan know what they have to do and that the plan works. It has to be maintained so that the information within the plan is up-to-date and relevant to the organisation at the time it is needed to ensure the organisation can recover to the agreed level of service within the maximum tolerable period of disruption. Business continuity management plans and business continuity management systems will be reviewed at the stated time frames set out in section 10 above Embedding Business Continuity Management in the Organisation s Culture Embedding Business Continuity Management in the Organisation s Culture is paramount to the success of the organisation to anticipate, assess, prevent, prepare respond and recover to any business continuity incident. This is done by engaging with staff at all levels to ensure they are aware of the value of business continuity management and that they are involved in the process to add ownership of them of the plans that effect them. This is carried out by awareness training (see 12) and involvement in the development of their directorate specific plans PAS 2015:2010 links the business continuity management system with the Integrated Emergency Management approach that drives the Emergency Plan which is inextricably linked to the business continuity plans.
