Event description
This Information Day aims to provide burns staff with all they need to know to undertake their role within a Burns Incident Response Team

About this Event

It would take just 20 critically ill burn-injured patients to overwhelm the Specialised Burn Services in England and Wales.

To ensure patients receive the best level of specialist care, Burns Incident Response Teams (BIRTs) are being developed to support a response to a burns mass casualty incident

A BIRT will consist of a Burns Surgeon, a Burns Anaesthetist and a Senior Burns Nurse.

The four Burn Care Operational Delivery Networks are hosting this National BIRT Information Day to provide:

  • An overview of the NHS England Concept of Operations for management of mass casualties – Burns Annex
  • An overview of BIRT membership, roles, experience and team working
  • Advice on preparing for activation and deployment to organisations receiving casualties
  • Information on the wider NHS England emergency response command and control structure
  • Information around legal requirements and good documentation
  • An understanding of the psychological impact on staff and building emotional resilience in teams
  • An understanding of the long term impact on staff and services
