Abstract

The organisational and service delivery landscape of the emergency services in the UK has been rapidly changing and is facing further change for the foreseeable future. The policy response to austerity continues to dominate service delivery, service deployment and the regulatory framework as the government demand ever more efficient and effective services. At the same time the resources organisations have available to deliver services has been reducing and is planned to be reduced further into the foreseeable future. Simultaneously, the emergency services are faced with a constantly changing pattern of risks, both natural and man-made, to national and local communities. This chapter will examine recent and ongoing organisational changes in the policy delivery and regulatory landscape of the emergency services. This is not to evaluate individual organisations or sectors but to identify the overall picture and the current disposition of organisations within the emergency services sector and potential opportunities for improvement or further investigation.
