The intention is to avoid what the 9/11 Commission calls the ‘failure of imagination’ that left society vulnerable to attack in 2001. The scenario that we generate is fictional. However, the response is informed by the emergency plans published by several NHS trusts, by direct involvement in evacuation drills and also by ways in which staff have responded to previous non-terrorist incidents.</ABSTRACT><URL>http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/~johnson/papers/NHS_terrorism.pdf</URL></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
