Ambulance Leadership Forum

ALF rescheduled to 6 & 7 September, 2022

The next annual Ambulance Leadership Forum will now be held on the revised dates of 6-7 September 2022, at the same venue of Jurys Inn, Hinckley Island, Leicestershire.

17 Dec 2021 :  With the recent arrival of the Omicron Covid 19 variant in the UK and concern being voiced about the impact on the NHS over winter it has been prudent to revisit our plans. Although still keen for colleagues to come together as soon as possible, it is clear that the current extreme pressures across all ambulance and health services is unlikely to resolve quickly.

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant may well lead to further restrictions and in these circumstances it is right that we focus on core activity and doing all we can to support our staff and patients.

It is therefore with regret that the AACE Board have decided to defer the holding of the 2022 ALF conference by 6 months from March to September 6th and 7th.  Please mark the new date in your diary.

Please also note that the Women In Leadership (WiL) seminar will still take place on Monday 7th March, albeit in a virtual format.  We are continuing to finalise the programme for that event and will advise updates to the agenda on these pages in due course. 

Subsequent to the March WiL event, we plan to come together again ahead of the rescheduled ALF on the afternoon of 5th September. Please reserve both 7th March and 5th Sept in your diary, if you wish to attend WiL. Please also keep an eye on our Twitter at @AACE_org 

By taking the decision now to move ALF 2022, we hope to minimise the inconvenience these changes might cause. Whilst scheduling the programme of speakers, sponsors, awards and exhibitors, we have been delighted by the support for our event and the willingness of everyone to make it a great conference, which we look forward to delivering for our colleagues.

We will update our plans for ALF in the new year.  In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding ALF 2022, please email
