Event description

Description

The second annual conference of the National Ambulance LGBT Network will take place on Friday 4 August at the AMEX Stadium in Brighton.

The focus of this year’s conference will be:

- Mental health needs of LGBT patients and staff
- Supporting trans* colleagues
- The health and support needs of older LGBT people
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Promoting dignity and respect

The conference is designed to support the continuing professional development needs of ambulance staff, but is also a fantastic opportunity to meet colleagues from across the country and share best practice. Last year’s conference was very well received by all who attended and the aim is to make this year’s conference even better.

The event is free^ and the 150 places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Once the 150 places are allocated, a reserve list will be held in case of any cancellations. All participants will receive lunch, a certificate of attendance and conference pack.

The event takes place the day before Brighton Pride and South East Coast Ambulance Service would like to invite all conference participants to take part in the parade.


^ A non-attendance fee of £50 is applicable to people who do not attend and fail the cancel their place. Demand for tickets is expected to be high and we encourage anyone who cannot attend to cancel their place as soon as possible to enable others a chance to take part.


Accommodation

We have managed to secure a small number of rooms at Brighton University for people attending the conference and Brighton Pride. Rooms are available on Thursday 3, Friday 4 and Saturday 5 August at a cost of £21 per night.

The rooms will be assigned on a strictly first-come first-served basis based on full payment being received. If you would like to check availability, and book a room, please contact Mike Taylor at michael.taylor963@mod.uk. Colleagues at South East Coast Ambulance Service should direct their enquiries to pride@secamb.nhs.uk.

Brighton gets extremely busy for the Pride weekend and we recommend that you book accommodation early to avoid paying inflated prices.
