Penny: So disaster resources have been limited in the past, about 10 years ago we had very few resources for GPs and over the last 10 years we've managed to develop quite a lot of resources that are now situated on the College website. There are resources there around what's really important, which is preparedness. Preparedness is something you need to do before you expect a disaster, so there's a lot of resources available on the college website around how to prepare. When a disaster occurs, it may usually be that it's actually the senior GP who's the lead person in the disaster response. So it might be different people preparing and different people involved in responding. So even if you just sit down with your practice put aside two hours and say “okay if there's an earthquake or a flood that comes through here now, what would we do?” and just drop down a whole list of points - that is better than nothing.
