The Resilience Plan sets out the North Lincolnshire approach to management of surges in demand across health and social care services in response to the NHS England ‘Operational and resilience planning for 2014/15 guidance; June 2014’. The plan, developed in conjunction with local stakeholders and in line with the guidance requirements, is currently within the NHS England assurance process and has undergone local table-top scenario testing involving all key stakeholders.
Whilst a surge in demand is expected during winter months, both health and social care services are now seeing surges throughout the year. The plan describes how stakeholder organisations will work together to monitor demand and escalate across the system in response to surges in demand.
