The recent impact of severe weather and ongoing strikes by junior doctors has highlighted the need for care providers to have effective plans that demonstrate how your business will continue operating during unplanned disruptions in your service.
Whether it’s flooding, staff shortages and strikes, cyber attacks or a civil emergency, you need to show how your business will resolve these issues, operate, and still provide great care and support to service users. Regulators expect providers to have a Business Continuity Plan in place, but how do you know if yours meets a high standard? Is your Business Continuity Plan tested and reviewed as part of your governance systems?
At QCS, we understand the importance of preparation. That’s why we’ve developed a Business Continuity Plan Emergency Test. It comes with a Four-Part Scenario, Responses Log, Lessons Learned Review and Action Plan for you and your team. Working through this test plan will give you an understanding of the key elements essential for a successful plan, and will also pinpoint any potential gaps that require attention.
By completing this test, you’ll demonstrate your capability to thoroughly assess and refine your plan, ensuring it remains resilient in the face of unexpected events.
