This international seminar aims to discuss challenges in emergency planning for healthcare services from a medical, engineering and global policy point of view. It will help the audience understanding the complexity of healthcare in day to day and in major emergencies times to guide research and practice developing more integrated and resilient operational approaches.

Bringing together international speakers from multi-disciplinary backgrounds to share their recent research and lessons learnt. Issues such as the resilience of critical infrastructure and lifeline, crowding and large service demand, and planning to major emergencies will be thoroughly discussed and linked to the challenges that the NHS and other related agencies are currently going through.

This unique event is free to attend and designed to represent the complexity of healthcare and thus will provide information for healthcare professionals, major emergency planners, policy makers and engineers. No matter what your background is, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions to the international speakers and gain knowledge from their experience to resolve your own problem.
