Like all public organisations, the Partnership Trust needs to be ready to respond to a wide range of major incidents and emergencies.

The organisation maintains a Major Incident Plan, which describes how different areas of our Trust will respond if a major incident impacts on what they do.

Each area of the organisations also maintains a business continuity plan, in which they account for actions that would be taken in the event of disruption to routine business arrangements.
