The emergency services are increasingly focused on service integration and the need to use a shared strategy to proactively concentrate services on vulnerable communities with high service demand, such as the poor, the elderly and those with chronic conditions.

The Fire and Rescue Service has an excellent record in fire prevention but faces the challenge to develop as a comprehensive public protection service. Ambulance Services require patient-specific information from health providers combined with relevant clinical training, to inform point-of-care decision-making delivery of tailored emergency care. Police Services require a tailored strategy that reflects the link between social inequalities and offending rates.

The event will begin with presentations from the three services on health inequality initiatives. This will be followed by a multi-panel discussion on challenges and best practice examples focusing on interprofessional/interdisciplinary learning.

The event will provide a platform to debate and generate ideas in which health organisations, health authorities, local councils, emergency services and Edge Hill University can work together to help improve the health and wellbeing of the populations being served.

Panel

  • Linda Hindle, Lead Allied Health Professional and National Engagement Lead for Police, Fire and Ambulance services, Public Health England
  • Dr David Ratcliffe, Medical Director, North West Ambulance Service
  • Chris Kenny, Chief Fire Officer, Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service
