Event details

The public sector consists of discrete areas; police deal with crime-related incidents, National Health Service (NHS) ambulance deal with health, and Fire and Rescue Services (FRS) with threats to person and property. Yet, the complex issues these organisations address usually overlaps numerous organisational spheres of work. Over the past three decades, operational reforms and successive legislation have promoted UK emergency services to collaborate with other public and/or private sector organisations in an attempt to achieve benefits such as enhanced effectiveness, efficiency, service quality, information integration, and interoperability. A key element in these collaborations is the development of ‘information infrastructures’ that enable partners to share information and allow data exchange and convergence.
