Ambulance Leadership Forum 2020 EDIT

ALF 2020:
The Conference for Leaders in the Ambulance Sector 

The Ambulance Leadership Forum (ALF 2020) will place on 17 & 18 March 2020.

Hosted by the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives at the Jurys Inn, Hinckley Island, Nuneaton Leicestershire, ALF 2020 is shaping up to be another high quality event.

Exploring themes relating to engagement across the STP/ICS landscape and integrated urgent care, speakers will look to stimulate discussion, provoke thought and share insights and experience. Do you work for an employer of choice? Can your workplace be improved? What role can the sector play in system leadership and how?

ALF 2020 promises to be bigger and better than ever, with a wide range of speakers and facilitators over two main days of conference.

If you are interested in attending ALF 2020, registration details can be found here.

Organised and managed by the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives (AACE) this important event enables senior managers, suppliers and others with an interest in the effective management of ambulance services to join forces to share ideas and best practice in a supportive and high-profile environment.

The Non-Executive Director (NED) Seminar

Preceding the opening of ALF, there will be a seminar focused on non-executive director roles and responsibilities. The evolving NHS landscape requires ambulance trust boards to remain current and informed, which isn’t always easy given the pace of change.

The bespoke seminar will share learning from experts and provide insight into how best non-executive functions can effectively engage with and navigate the wider health and social care system. The seminar will be delivered by the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives in conjunction with The King’s Fund, NHS Providers and the NHS Confederation.

Registration for the NED Seminar can be made through your Ambulance Trust Leads here.

The ALF Gala Awards Dinner

As part of ALF 2020 we will again come together to celebrate outstanding service across UK services at the Gala Awards Dinner on the evening of Tuesday 17 March.

Attendance at this poular event is included as part of delegate packages and can be arranged, along with conference bookings, by your service lead.
You can register for ALF 2020 here.

As always, the Gala Awards Dinner will provide an excellent opportunity for Ambulance Leadership Forum attendees to applaud excellence, discuss developments from the last year, and network with colleagues.

However, most importantly, the evening will provide an opportunity for AACE and colleagues to recognise members of staff from across all UK ambulance services who have provided truly outstanding service, going above and beyond the call of duty in a variety of categories that represented the whole breadth of service delivery.

Research papers presentations – a call for Abstracts

AACE is pleased to announce that dedicated time will again be scheduled for the main stage presentation of research focused on ambulance service delivery and leadership. Following last year’s success we expect high quality submissions and a close vote from the audience to select the winner for the £500 travel bursary.

Interesting in taking part? Abstracts can be submitted here.
