Expected Bad Weather

11 January 2017
Preparing for winterWith bad weather, including snow in some areas, forecast for our region from tomorrow (Thursday, 12th January 2017) onwards, the Trust is ensuring that plans are in place to respond to adverse weather if needed.

As part of this, please could all staff ensure they plan ahead and check local weather forecasts and road conditions in their area.

It is worth thinking in advance about:

  • Planning your journey to and from work, especially if you know you have had problems previously – please remember it is your responsibility to make every effort to get into work
  • In exceptional circumstances, there will be limited capacity for collecting staff from home
  • If you can’t make it to your usual base/EOC but can make it to another site, then please do so
  • If any front-line staff are unable to get into work and are due to be on shift, please contact your local EOC; all other staff should contact their line manager

Also, please think carefully during this period about how best you can support the Trust by:

  • Cancelling non-essential meetings to avoid unnecessary travelling
  • If you are response-capable, making yourself available to respond (via your local EOC)
  • Offering any other support you are able to

Thank you.

Andy Cashman, Head of Resilience & Specialist Operations
