Emergency preparedness resilience and response (EPRR)

16 Jun 2022
NHS England stand mini theatre

The NHS needs to be able to plan for and respond to a wide range of incidents and emergencies which could affect health or patient care. These could be anything from extreme weather conditions, global pandemics, a major transport accident, a cyber security incident or a terrorist act. This work is referred to in the health service as emergency preparedness, resilience and response (EPRR).

This session will provide a brief overview of EPRR arrangements for the NHS, how they will work for Integrated Care Systems and will also look at the impact of COVID-19 on EPRR.

Members of the national EPRR team will also be available for questions and individual discussions during and after the session.
