PERFORMANCE: A risk planning document for the south west London cluster of PCTs said deliveries of services like oxygen to patients homes could have to be made at night, to avoid disruption to the Olympics.
A document said: “There is a risk of a disruption to the normal supply chain for NHS organisations with deliveries needing to be made at night or outside of event / Olympic Route Network times.
“An example of this would be the delivery of oxygen to patient’s homes or community settings. Mitigation: All providers are working with their suppliers on their business continuity plans for deliveries during Games time (including the Torch Relay).”
It added there would be a “South West London Olympics exercise in spring 2012 will test the cluster responses to dealing with both the Olympics and a major incident.”
