BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLANS FOR GENERAL PRACTITIONERS

CASE STUDY

In 1999 a prescribing practice opened a new surgery, with a state-of-the-art burglar alarm. The alarm however was faulty and sounded erroneously and intermittently over the next few months. It became common practice for a domestic who lived nearby to let herself into the surgery and re-set the alarm.

One evening the alarm sounded and was attended by the domestic, who was assaulted by burglars. The burglars stole a small vanload of medical equipment and all the contents of the controlled drugs safe. The burglars set a fire to cover their tracks and all of the paper patient records were destroyed, as was all of the IT equipment.

None of the damage, loss of stock or equipment was covered by insurance, as there was a record that the burglar alarm was faulty. All losses including re-stocking of the pharmacy had to be paid for out of the GP Partners’ income. In addition the Practice was severely disrupted during the Police investigation, the injured domestic sued the practice and won £70,000 in damages and a rival practice set up close by, resulting in the Practice losing 23% of its patient base.
