The initial phase of any response will be to ensure appropriate on-going care for current ACCU patients and to prepare for any further MI related patients. There may be a significant time lag between the incident being declared and the ACCU receiving patients.


When major incident declared and if you are on duty ensure that you report to 1113 and make them aware that you know the incident has been declared.

  1. If out of hours or you are off duty attend the RLH ACCU and proceed immediately to meeting rooms 3/4 (in ward 4E) to await further instructions.
  2. Ensure you have you Trust ID and your mobile phone (with charger) when attending the hospital.
  3. Be prepared to be stood down depending on the nature of the incident and the need to maintain staffing over the following days.
