The Conference Programme for the inaugural National Ambulance Resilience Conference 2012, which is being staged by the National Ambulance Resilience Unit is now available on this website.

The Conference will be held on the 20th September at the AMBITION 2012 event, Silverstone Racetrack, Northampton, UK – chosen because it is an extremely central location and easy to access. Bookings are being taken here.

This is a one-day Conference and will be of interest primarily to:

  • Most ambulance staff, especially paramedics, EMTs, HART teams, Operations Managers and Directors, Resilience Leads, Emergency Preparedness Leads, Education & Training personnel and those with a professional interest in interoperability issues.
  • Those working in other pre-hospital situations, A&E or military hospital environments and those operating alongside the ambulance service in partner agencies such as fire and police.
  • Anyone working in the wider emergency planning or civil contingencies fields.

The delegate cost for NARU 2012 is just £45 + VAT (£54 total) for anyone working in the public sector, and £90 + VAT (£108 total) for private sector delegates. This includes all-day refreshments and delegate lunch. Prices have been kept low to encourage attendance. You can book today by clicking here.

Don’t forget that alongside the conference we will also be hosting a number of meetings at the event, alongside our room full of exhibitors. The following national NHS ambulance groups have been invited to attend the event, and we will be hosting their meetings during the day, leaving them free to network and visit the exhibition afterwards.

  • Chief Executives of all NHS Ambulance Trusts
  • The National HART Vehicle and Equipment Group which decides on the next generation of HART kit and vehicles
  • The Association of Ambulance Chief Executives’ Ideas, Technology & Innovation Workshop (approx. 60 people) which is looking for a variety of next generation products for use across the ambulance service
