The Department of Health today launced Exercise Prometheus, an
exercise for the social care sector to assess and develop its resilience planning in readiness for a second wave of the pandemic swine flu. Designed as an ‘off the shelf’ package primarily for use by local authorities in partnership with their local providers of social care, the exercise has been developed by the Health Protection Agency from experience gained in previous pandemic influenza exercises.
I like this a lot – although I have to admit that the main attraction for me is the choice of “Prometheus” as the title. It’s nice to see that someone in the DoH has a classical education and a nerdy obsession with etymology.
