Why did the health board call an internal major incident? Is it an emergency?

Declaring an internal major incident in relation to RAAC at Withybush Hospital enables us to immediately start our internal command and control structures (Gold, Silver and Bronze), recognising that as survey work continues it will require our teams to be able to react quickly when substandard RAAC planks are discovered.

By calling an internal major incident, we are also able to prioritise the work of our teams to deal with the emerging issue and draw upon support from partner agencies that are members of the Dyfed Powys Local Resilience Forum.
