REAP Increase Level 2 to 3

REAP 3

Due to current operational pressures, the Trust has moved from REAP level 2 to REAP level 3.

What is REAP?

Resource Escalation Action Plan (REAP) is a plan that is considered at least weekly by the Ambulance Trust to declare the expected operating level for the next seven days, with the ability between to change this level based on changed information or intelligence.

We are already taking a number of actions as part of REAP level 2 to assist in improving our response to patients and ensuring we provide the best possible care. However, further actions are now needed to ensure we meet forecasted demand.

More detailed guidance on REAP levels can be found on East24.
