A FOUR-WEEK exercise to prepare Scotland for a flu pandemic is to start next week, it was announced yesterday.
The Scottish Government will be running the emergency exercise, called Cauld Craw, involving health boards, the ambulance services and other organisations who will be key to managing a severe outbreak of flu.
Ms Sturgeon also disclosed today that Cauld Craw - a four-week civil contingency exercise involving hospitals, ambulance services and other agencies to prepare the country for an eventual flu pandemic had been delayed because of the swine flu outbreak.
She told the Good Morning Scotland programme that Cauld Craw - Scots for Cold Throat - had been due “by sheer coincidence” to start this morning. “Obviously that has now been suspended,” she said.
