A fuel emergency can occur for a wide variety of reasons, and will, in all situations where there is a real or even perceived shortage, become an extremely emotive public issue. The overriding aim of the governments National Emergency Plan - Fuel (NEF-P) is to mitigate any significant fuel supply disruption in England; co-ordinated by The Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
The Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has lead responsibility for coordinating the response to major incidents for several key services and industries, vital to public safety.
Compared to other regions the Southeast uses significantly more fuel compared to other regions. This is likely to be due to the location of major roads including the M25, M4, & the M3. Ashford & St. Peters Hospitals (ASPH) is a two site Trust - the AH site has good road and transport networks. The SPH site (located in rural surrey) infrastructure for public transport is significantly poorer than London / city areas, which impacts on the fuel consumption of staff and patients travelling to and from the Trust .
