The Trust’s Resource Escalatory Action Plan (REAP) has been
updated to reflect changes to REAP following a national review led
by the National Ambulance Resilience Unit (NARU) in 2015.

The most significant change is the reduction
of REAP levels from six to four to align to wider NHS pressure
reporting systems.  The new REAP levels indicate pressures as

REAP plan
can be found on the intranet under Policies and
Procedures in the
Operations Resilience section

As a result of the changes the Senior Operations Leadership Team
has reviewed the REAP triggers and agreed that the Trust should
move into REAP Level 3 – Severe Pressure in order
to align to the new to the REAP levels.
