All Day

We’re delighted to be Silver Sponsors of this year’s Ambulance Leadership Forum (ALF) taking place on Tuesday 18th May, 09.00-17.00

The global pandemic has forced many changes in the way that organisations operate and communicate with their key stakeholders. As such, this year’s annual Ambulance Leadership Forum (ALF) will be held online.

‘Responding to new challenges and opportunities’

Once again the spotlight will be firmly on UK ambulance services as they fight to meet current challenges and continue to improve clinical outcomes against a backdrop of rising demand that shows no signs of slowing, a key issue compounded by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Commissioning and workforce pressures – as well as the issues faced by other parts of the urgent and emergency care system – are the top priorities for discussion at this unique online event.

Using some of the best interactive online event software, the format will continue to contain a mix of live speaker sessions, live panel / debate, networking, knowledge sharing presentations from UK national ambulance director groups and access to sponsor content and an exhibition area.

As in previous years, the event is open to UK and international delegates alike.

Steve Irving, Executive Officer at AACE, said:

We are really looking forward to the new format and are keen to welcome our international colleagues in the same way we do at our annual face-to-face conference, which has grown to become the key event in the UK ambulance calendar.

In reality it is often only at a highly-tailored event like ALF that we can find the time to pause with colleagues who are facing similar challenges – especially during this global pandemic – and reflect on what we are doing well, where we can improve and what we need to do to enable us to continue to deliver effective ambulance services consistently and in a sustainable way. In short, our aim is for ALF to stimulate debates and ideas at a time when they are needed most.

We would also add that the ALF will remain a prestigious event that adds value for delegates and sponsors

Race for Care
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The National Ambulance BME Forum has announced this year’s ‘Race for Care’ event, sponsored by Class Professional Publishing. It will take place on the 7th October 2021 between 10:00 and 16:00 as a virtual event.


A message from NABMEF:

2020 was a year of reflection for a lot of us and required us to tap further into and strengthen our resilience.  It was a year when the inequalities in health became central to conversations. With this in mind, the National Ambulance BME Forum (NABMEF) decided to continue with plans to deliver a conference in 2021.

Due to the ongoing pandemic and operational challenges, our 2021 conference will be taking place in a virtual format on 7 October between 10:00 and 16:00hrs. We hope that you and colleagues from your organisations will be able to join us for this event. The conference is suitable for and open to clinical and non-clinical colleagues across all pay bands.

Our main overarching headlines will be leadership, resilience, and competency in care delivery for diverse communities and the day will be looking at a number of areas:

  • Leadership and personal competence, as demonstrated through our keynote speakers. 
  • Understanding the need for cultural humility
  • Variation in presentation of clinical conditions in BME communities, including the interaction with NHS pathways and revision of clinical guidelines in JRCALC
  • Cultural competency in midwifery care to help us support better outcomes
  • Creating safe spaces for conversations about Race and building personal resilience. 

Colleagues will be able to request an attendance certificate to support their CPD portfolio.
