  • I am going to talk about our experience of trying to address issues as they arose In most emergencies issues arise you do not plan for In this flu pandemic, we had neither a slow rising tide nor a flash flood experience but a mix of different issues in different parts of the country and the city I think what comes out of this is the need to seek to predict what systems of the City’s life will be most affected given what we now know, and then seek to make those resilient My guesses are most cities will see schools, nurseries and social care very affected In delivering this I am focusing on Local Authority services because this is a local authority seminar. I will, inevitably, do injustice to NHS family colleagues because of this. Setting up out of hours flu centres, for example, was a valuable experience for us. And the work of BADGER in developing clinical good practice in assessment and response is just one important piece of work from Birmingham I won;’t be able to do justice to. I will also inecvitably underestimate the role of the Birmingham Resilience Team and the multi-agency Birmingham Resilience Group. These have been hugely important and positive experiences.
