Emergency Planning in Health Care: Scoping study of the international literature, local information resources and key stakeholders – NHS Institute for Health Research – November 2012

Final report 
Executive Summary
Appendix 1

Extract

“There are many different ways of preparing and responding to emergencies around the world and a lot has also been written about it. However, we do not how reliable this information is and it is not clear which emergency planning interventions work. Furthermore, much of the work has been done outside the UK, so again it is not certain whether they will apply in our UK context. At least 11 major incidents happen each year in the UK and a significant amount of money is spent planning and preparing for them. There is therefore a real need to understand how we can best plan and prepare services to cope with major incidents and emergencies.”
