Contingency planning service

As part of Vanguard’s commitment to support the NHS, offer a free contingency planning service. This service has been used a number of NHS Trusts across the UK and has been utilised by private hospitals in some parts of the country.

Our clinical, technical and logistics specialists will arrange to meet with your teams to develop a bespoke emergency response plan. Should a situation then arise where replacement clinical capacity is required at short notice, the hospital can implement a pre-planned response to deliver a rapid, reliable solution and minimise the period during which there is no service provision.
