The Cheshire and Merseyside Public Health England Centre, in conjunction with Local Authority Public Health and Local Health Resilience Partnerships (LHRP), have organised an exercise to test the reviewed Multi-Agency Outbreak Control Plan. The design and context of this exercise is in line with the new health Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response (EPRR) structures that were introduced in April 2013.

The exercise will test primarily the roles and responsibilities and preparedness of the local health organisations, such as: NHS commissioners and providers, including acute and community trusts, primary care providers, minor injuries units, Ambulance Services (NWAS), NHS England Area Team, and Clinical Commissioning Groups.

In addition, the exercise will also include challenges to test Local Authority Public Health teams, including Directors of Public Health and Environmental Health Services, and the local Public Health England Centre capabilities and its wider provision of specialist health protection advice and services.
