Blood Supply Contingency and Emergency Plan (B-SCEP) Project
The B-SCEP Recommendations and Model Preparedness Plan provide foundations to support European countries in preparedness for emergency situations that may impact the blood supply. This toolkit can be applied to any blood system, irrespective of organisational setting, and the standardised format facilitates contingency collaborations. By establishing a B-SCEP, in which key stakeholders and their expected actions are defined for different key risk scenarios, effective mitigation strategies and a rapid response can be implemented. This facilitates continuity of the blood supply in emergency situations.
