EPRR: Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response
Like all community health and care providers, we are required by NHS England to ensure there are preparations in place to maintain delivery of our services in the event of an incident (an emergency that requires the implementation of special arrangements). This area is referred to as Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response (EPRR).
Each year we carry out a self-assessment against a set of core standards, set by NHS England and score Red, Amber or Green (RAG) against where we believe we are for those core standards.
There are 4 levels of rating, these are:
- Fully Compliant
- Substantial Compliant
- Partial Compliant
In 2017, we reached the level of Partial Compliant, achieving an 80% compliance rating. We are now working towards achieving full compliance.
