Business Continuity Planning

This support might appeal to a registered manager, nominated individual or a care business owner, quality assurance or governance leads wanting to review and further develop their business continuity plans to ensure they are robust and meet the current expectations of the regulators.

Business Continuity Planning is a proactive business process that helps you to identify and understand any potential threats, vulnerabilities, and weaknesses to your organisation in times of crisis. It ensures forward planning to identify and manage all potential risks that could disrupt your service delivery. The creation of a business continuity plan will ensure that you and your staff can react quickly and efficiently to business interruption, eliminating confusion and providing a clear blueprint for what everyone should do.

The consequences of not having a business continuity plan can include some or all of the following:

  • Business interruption
  • Supply chain failure
  • Injury or death
  • Financial loss
  • Employee productivity
  • Business reputation
