Abstract

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.
