It is becoming increasing clear that we are on the precipice of a collapsing system. Whereas the precipitating factors of population and national economics are known, it is the complex, interacting set of conditions and behaviours that creates CRASH out of a crisis. The system, at all levels, is largely blind to the conditions and even blinder to their interactions and its impact. This leaves the individuals, services and Trusts within the system, incredibly vulnerable, without a clear conceptual framework with which to understand the problems and no clear pathway to survive, let alone thrive, through the CRASH. Whereas CRASH is not inevitable, the persisting presence of these conditions in an environment of professional naivety virtually guarantees that it is. It is time for these conditions to be surfaced and intelligent solutions, adaptations and mitigation to be created and implemented.
