    The trust has gone to REAP level 4 on the following dates since 2014:

     

     

    Date From

    1

    13/10/2014

    2

    04/12/2015

    3

    31/12/2017

     

    Unfortunately we are unable to provide specific details of reasons for the change on these dates.  However I can confirm that when we moved to REAP 4 on 31/12/2017 the Trust was under severe demand pressures in line with the REAP Triggers set out in the NARU Guidance document.
