This plan is to be used to assist in the continuity and recovery of Cannock Chase CCG and Stafford and Surrounds CCG in the event of an unplanned disruption. A disruption could be any event which threatens personnel, buildings or operational capacity and requires special measures to be taken to restore normal service.
The aim of the plan is to set out the roles, responsibilities and actions to be taken by both CCGs to enable continuity and recovery of the key parts of the service following a significant disruption.
All Cannock Chase CCG and Stafford and Surrounds CCG staff will be provided with awareness training to familiarise themselves with business continuity arrangements and recovery procedures. New starters will be made aware of this plan and their potential role during a disruption as part of the CCG’s new starter induction process. Any staff with a specific role in the recovery from a disruption, or who may be asked to cover another suitable role, will be given appropriate training. Line managers will be responsible for making all staff in their teams aware of the CCG’s Business Continuity Plan.
