Emergencies vary in size and impact and it is hard to plan for everything. To assist providers in the community Nelson Marlborough Health is engaged in a project to assist community providers. The first stage is to build a complete database of all providers and a single point of contact for emergency notifications and communication. Following on from this there will be seminars on emergency management and pandemic planning looking at effective planning and tools to either update existing plans or develop new plans.
To assist with current planning Nelson Marlborough Health has put together the following resources:
- business continuity guide
- service continuity plan
- the DHB also run emergency management courses for local health providers.
