2 1.0 Background and Introduction Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust (NLAG), in common with other NHS organisations, has a duty to protect and promote the health of the community, including at times of emergency. As a Category 1 responder under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, the Trust has a legal obligation to plan for and respond to any incident with major consequences for health or health services, in partnership with other parts of the NHS, the emergency services and local authorities. 2.0 NHS Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response (EPRR) Assurance NLAG is required to undertake an annual self-assessment against the NHS England Core Standards for EPRR. These core standards cover all aspects of the Trust s EPRR work, including the Trust s statutory obligations under the Civil Contingencies Act A self-assessment was completed during September 2014 culminating in a statement of compliance and an action plan for identified gaps being taken to the Trust Board in October The self-assessment submitted to NHS England via the Trust Board, demonstrated the Trust s current compliance against the 37 core standards for overall preparedness and the 14 core standards specific for Hazardous Materials / Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (HAZMAT / CBRN) preparedness as detailed below: Compliance with 37 Core Standards for Overall Preparedness Compliance Description of Compliance Number of Core Standards Not Applicable Not applicable to the Trust 4 Green Arrangements in place now 31 Amber Draft or scheduled on action plan 2 Red Arrangements not in place or scheduled 0 Compliance with 14 Core Standards for HAZMAT / CBRN Preparedness Compliance Description of Compliance Number of Core Standards Not Applicable Not applicable to the Trust 0 Green Arrangements in place now 7 Amber Draft or scheduled on action plan 7 Red Arrangements not in place or scheduled 0 Based on this self-assessment, the Trust Board approved a statement of compliance submission as Full compliance, which meets the criteria The plans and work programme in place appropriately address all the core standards that the organisation is expected to achieve. An action plan (attached at Appendix A) was created for the nine Amber core standards and its progress is monitored and reviewed through the Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response Steering Group. Four of the nine actions have been completed while the remaining five are in progress. 3.0 Testing, Training and Working Together with Local Partner Agencies As a Category 1 responder, NLAG must carry out training and exercising of our emergency plans and contribute towards collaborative exercising of local partner agencies emergency plans. The EPRR Training Programme (attached at Appendix B) lists the internal and external training and exercises completed over the past two years and those planned within the next three years. In addition to this list, an EPRR Awareness session is part of the Trust Corporate Induction delivered to all new employees of the Trust. Page 2 of 17

3 Emergency plans must be validated through an exercise every three years as a minimum unless a live incident occurs when the emergency plan is implemented and a post-incident report is completed. Section 5.0 within this report refers to live incidents that have provided the appropriate validation for specific emergency plans. During 2014, the Emergency ning Department has developed and created a scenario based table top exercise toolkit consisting of a visual hospital footprint and detailed scenarios providing a realistic incident experience for clinical and non-clinical participants. Four table top exercises have been delivered, focusing on the Trust s Emergency Department response to a large scale incident within our area (a train derailment on the Scunthorpe to Grimsby line involving 50 casualties of varying severities of injury). All four exercises were well attended with positive feedback received that the training enhanced the participant s knowledge of the Major Incident, the overall Trust response and their individual role in responding to an incident. NLAG hosted a Strategic Leadership in a Crisis course in October 2014 which was attended by Executive Directors from NLAG and neighbouring NHS organisations. The nationally recognised course provides Directors with an overview of the legislation supporting EPRR within the NHS, decision making during an incident and what to expect if they have to attend a multi-agency Strategic Coordinating Group. The Major Incident was also a primary focus in this year s On-Call Director and On-Call Senior Manager Training Sessions. An internally designed and delivered Loggist course was introduced within the Trust during 2014 with 36 members of staff from across the Trust volunteering to undertake the training and be part of a call out register to support an Incident Coordination Centre during an incident, the value of which has been recognised during live incidents as detailed section 5.0. In respect of partnership working with Local Partner Agencies, NLAG is represented at the Local Resilience Forum, the Local Resilience Forum s Sub-Groups, the Yorkshire and Humber Major Incident Practitioners Group, and the Local Health Resilience Partnership. 4.0 Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response - Work Programme The EPRR Work Programme (Appendix C) provides a high level overview of the work to be carried out over the coming three years. The EPRR Work Programme will continue to develop in line with the ever changing guidance and legislation to ensure the Trust maintains its compliance and readiness to respond to an incident. 5.0 Incidents Implementation of Emergency s Over the past 12 months, some of Trust s emergency plans have been activated to support the response to live incidents or as part of the preparedness actions to prevent an incident from occurring. Emergency Date Description of Incident Heatwave July 2014 The Met Office issued a Level 2 Heatwave Alert and the Heatwave was implemented for level 2 actions Major Incident Incident Coordination Centre Manual 04/10/2014 Water pipe leak at SGH causing water tanks to run dry resulting in no running water on site Major Incident declared and plan implemented to assist the management and response to the incident 04/10/2014 As above Incident Coordination Centre established to provide a command and control function to support the response Page 3 of 17

4 Significant Incident 26/11/2014 Core switch failure at SGH causes the entire IT network and systems to fail Trustwide Significant Incident declared and plan implemented to assist the management and response to the incident Business Continuity s Oct-Nov 2014 Industrial Action by seven unions resulted in two strikes and several weeks of action short of strike Business Continuity s were used to identify critical and noncritical services and supported the re-allocation of resources 6.0 Summary and Next Steps In summary, there continues to be a considerable amount of work in developing the Trust s EPRR arrangements. The Trust s EPRR arrangements were scrutinised by East Coast Audit Consortium in their Internal Audit Report, completed during March 2014, demonstrating that the Trust has significant assurance. There maintains a high level of focus and priority nationally and with the developing national guidance due to the expanding range of threats and events which the Trust must be prepared for, it is essential that there is a continued focus on the Trust s emergency preparedness and business continuity arrangements which should be seen as an on-going corporate priority. It is important that the Trust maintains and continues to advance the reputation in the EPRR arena that has been developed over the last three years. 7.0 Trust Board Action Required The Board is asked to: note the current compliance against the NHS England Core Standards for EPRR and the action plan in response to those actions which are ongoing (Appendix A) note the Training Programme (Appendix B) note the Work Programme (Appendix C) for the coming year 2015/16 Page 4 of 17
