Senior managers from the St John Ambulance & Rescue Service Guernsey recently attended the National Ambulance Leadership Forum in Leeds, a prestigious annual event that provides a platform for networking and discussion about the ongoing development of UK ambulance services.

The event was opened by the guest of honour, The Right Honourable Andy Burnham MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Health. Other speakers include representatives from industry, parliamentarians, commissioners and a range of other guests.

Speakers addressed topics such as ‘the future of emergency and urgent care’ and ‘an integrated approach to emergency medical services’.

This helps us to ensure our ambulance service is best placed to provide broader services in the future.”
