The National Ambulance LGBT Network Conference 2017


In 2015, the National Ambulance Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Network was founded to help improve the experiences of LGBT people who contact the ambulance service; expand the support offered to ambulance staff; and create a visible presence in the community. Since its formation, committee members, regional representatives and ambulance staff from across the country have worked tirelessly towards these core objectives, and to share best practice between regional ambulance LGBT networks. In August of 2017, the Network held its second annual conference to emphasise some of the health inequalities that LGBT people are known to experience when accessing health care. Over the course of the day, delegates were able to learn about interventions and support measures that are available through a series of workshops on issues such as dementia care and post-traumatic stress disorder. This conference report documents the success of the National Ambulance LGBT Network Conference 2017 and provides an overview of the engagement and support packages that are currently under development to support staff wellbeing and patient experience.
